How should facilities retain QA/QC records for equipment (film processors and/or mammographic units) that were in use for a period of time between the previous MQSA inspection and the current inspection, and have since been retired from use and replaced with new equipment?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

The requirement for maintenance of QA/QC records for equipment currently being used is that these records must be maintained until the next annual inspection has been completed and it is determined that the facility is in compliance with the requirements or until the test has been performed two additional times at the required frequency, whichever is longer. However, for film processors and/or mammographic units that are no longer at the facility, the records need only be kept for that equipment until the next annual inspection has been completed and it is determined that the facility is in compliance with the requirements.
