What changes?

Are you planning to start as a healthcare or youth care provider? New providers are required to notify the Health and Youth Care Inspectorate (Inspectie voor de Gezondheidszorg) before they may start providing healthcare.

The healthcare or youth care provider will be asked to supply information on for instance the intended staring date, the types of care that will be offered and whether or not there is a complaints procedure in place.

You can already register with CIBG by logging in at the notification portal (in Dutch).

For whom?

  • all new healthcare and youth care providers that fall under the Healthcare Quality, Complaints and Disputes Act (Wet kwaliteit, klachten en geschillen gezondheidszorg, Wkkgz)

When?

It is expected the Healthcare providers accession Act (Wet toetreding zorgaanbieders, Wtza) will come into force on 1 January 2022.

Please note: The effective date of this measure is not yet final. Entry into force is subject to its passing through the upper and lower houses of parliament or proclamation of the Order in Council (Algemene Maatregel van Bestuur, AMvB) or ministerial decree and publication in the Staatsblad or the Staatscourant (in Dutch).
