The Canadian Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (CAAASF) is a national organization formed in 1990 to ensure that surgical procedures done outside a public hospital are performed safely and carefully. It is a voluntary organization of doctors. Member facilities have chosen to be inspected by their colleagues because they want their patients to have the assurance of a safe alternative to in-hospital surgery.

The CAAASF Mandate

The aim of the Canadian Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities is threefold:
to establish facility and equipment guidelines that facilities must meet before being accepted for membership; to designate appropriate qualifications for individuals working in an ambulatory surgical facilities; to ensure that these standards are maintained in the day-to-day operation of the facility ( In-House Quality Assurance Program ).
