Position Statements

Share/Print

The National Commission's position statements serve to augment the Standards or express NCCHC's expert opinion on important issues that are not addressed in the Standards.

Along with the Standards, these statements may assist correctional facilities in designing policies and procedures. NCCHC's Policy and Standards Committee reviews position statements at least every five years. Unless reaffirmed or revised within five years, a position statement will expire. Position statements are subject to approval by the NCCHC Board of Directors.
