As per the Radiation Protection Act, a registration certificate must be issued prior to using designated radiation equipment.
Requirement to Report Changes in CAR-MAP Status
To ensure patient safety and quality imaging, and to maintain CPSA accreditation, facilities offering mammography services must also have current accreditation and certification from the Canadian Association of Radiologists Mammography Accreditation Program (CAR-MAP).
Any changes in CAR-MAP accreditation equipment status (new, renewal, active, provisional, not accredited, or other) must be immediately shared with the CPSA in writing.
