Audits' progress

OsEAN is proud to present a brief update on the progress of the auditing process which started in October 2015. OsEAN member schools are being audited by the Austrian Standards Institution (ASI) according to the CEN- Standard “EN 16686 – Osteopathic Healthcare Provision” and the OsEAN-Standard.

So far 5 schools have already completed the whole process and received their certification, 2 are waiting to be approved, 7 schools are scheduled for an audit and another 9 schools have contacted the ASI with the request to be scheduled.

OsEAN is working hard on its mission of “pursuing excellence in osteopathic education” and one of its strategies is to get all its members audited by the end of 2017.

We promise to keep you up-to-date on that matter but of course here you can follow the progress yourself.
