By law, MQSA certificates must be prominently displayed in all facilities (42 U.S.C. 263b(b)(1)(A)(iii)). Where should they be displayed?
An MQSA certificate should be displayed prominently where mammography patients can easily see it, such as the patient reception area. If a facility has more than one patient reception area, it may request an additional MQSA certificate at no charge for each reception area from FDA. Mobile facilities must have at least one original MQSA certificate displayed whenever the mobile unit is performing mammography. All MQSA certificates issued to a facility will share that facility’s unique 6-digit identification number. Contact the MQSA Hotline at 1-800-838-7715 to request additional MQSA certificates. Facilities with State issued MQSA certificates should check with their State agencies for their policies regarding additional MQSA certificates.
