No. 2016 - 007q
SUBJECT: Rules and Requlations Governins the Licensure of Ambulances and

I. BACKGROT]ND AI\D RATIONALE


Section VI. A. 4. of Administrative Order No. 2010-0003 entitled 'T.{ational Policy on
Ambulance Use and Services" states that the "Bureau of Health Facilities and Services shall
establish licensing standards for ambulance services and ensures their implementation
through regulation. The license of hospital-based ambulance service shall be part of the
hospital license. All other ambulance services shall require a separate license."

The current licensing standard requires hospital facilities to provide ambulance services.
However, it has been observed that the term oambulance' has been misused. There are ambulances
that operate without competent personnel, appropriate equipment and life-saving drugs capable of
responding to medical emergencies.

Regulation is the first step to exrsure that health facilities and services comply with the
qualrty standards that will not put patients' lives at risk. It is in this light that the Health Facilities
and Services Regulatory Bureau (HFSRB) sets the basic requirements as well as the minimum
stnrctural inputs in relation to ambulance design, physical facilities, manpower, and equipment for
the operation of ambulance and ambulance service providers that support the right of patients to
safe and qualrty health care.

In view of the above, this Order aims to establish mandatory minimum requirements for
ambulances and ambulance service providers in line with the Kalusugan Pangkalahatan
(Universal Health Care) strategic thrust to improve access to safe, quality and affordable health
services.

il. OBIECTIVE
These rules and regulations are promulgatd to protect the public and assure the safety of
patients and personnel by:

1. By setting the minimum standards and requirements for ambulances and ambulance
service providers; and

2. Ensuring the safety of patients, personnel and the general public.

IU. SCOPE AI\TD COVERAGE


These rules and regulations shall apply to all government and private land ambulances and
arnbulance service providers.
