Italian Health Ministry Gives Six-Month Extension For Defibrillator Compliance

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

In Italy, the government has granted facilities where non-competitive and amateur sports are practised a six-month extension to comply with the April 24, 2013 decree which requires them to not only have a semi-automated external defibrillator (AED) on site, but also to have personnel trained in the use of these devices. The deadline was supposed to have been Jan. 20, 2016, but an additional six months have been granted in a Jan 11 health ministry decree to allow for the necessary training in AEDs. The original decree applies to AEDs, and to other lifesaving devices.
