The Office of Health Standards Compliance (OHSC) is the health regulator established through the National Health Amendment Act of 2013 (NHAA). Under Section 78 of the Act, the OHSC’s object is to protect and promote the health and safety of users of health establishments nationwide by:


Monitoring and enforcing compliance by health establishments with norms and standards prescribed by the Minister concerning the national health system; and
Ensuring that complaints about non-compliance with prescribed norms and standards are considered, investigated, and disposed of in a procedurally fair, economical, and expeditious manner.

The OHSC strives to conduct inspection and certification processes professionally and impartially in line with its legal mandate of ensuring consistent, safe, and quality improvement in all health establishments in the country. The inspections conducted by OHSC aim to ensure that health establishments across all levels of care comply with the prescribed norms and standards. All health establishments in the country will be required to receive certification by the OHSC as a gateway to participate and be accredited by the NHI Fund.
