Argentina has taken a significant step forward in extending the accreditation of its dialysis services. The national chamber of renal therapy services and products (CASPT) has entered an agreement with the institute for the accreditation of healthcare services (ITAES) to perform the testing. The success of the initiative will, however, depend on service providers coming forward for assessment. The regular testing regime undertaken by ITAES is voluntary and confidential. To date, six leading centres have been accredited, according to Fresenius Medical Care. ITAES is a non-governmental organisation set up by leading healthcare service providers, industry associations and healthcare funding bodies to conduct quality-assurance and biosecurity accreditation.
