Governance and quality arrangements

The majority of licensed establishments in the Anatomy sector reported that they have good quality management and governance systems in place. 36 establishments reported that they regularly undertake traceability audits.

We asked Anatomy establishments if they undertook any new activities, since the last compliance update, on their premises. 17 establishments indicated that they had, all of which were described as new training courses.

All Anatomy establishments reported that they had risk assessments in place. Seven establishments indicated they did not have three or more of the risk assessments listed in the compliance update question. We followed up with these establishments and confirmed that they either had other governance documents addressing the potential risks, or did not undertake activities associated with the risks outlined in the question.
