  • Field reviews of standards

    Your comments are important

    CARF uses an interdisciplinary approach when sets of standards are introduced or revised. The proposed standards are posted for a public comment period called a field review.

    Service providers, consumers, caregivers, payers, and other interested parties are invited to provide feedback to ensure the relevancy of the standards before they are adopted and published in a standards manual.

    Your feedback is essential to maintaining the relevancy and currency of CARF standards. We value your opinions, comments, and suggestions on these standards. All field review responses are anonymous.

    CARF is conducting field reviews of proposed new or revised standards in the areas listed below for inclusion in future standards manuals.
