Standards and Certification Regulations

2011 Edition

The 2011 Edition was adopted through a final rule in 2010 and set certification criteria that established the technical capabilities and specify the related standards and implementation specifications that Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) needs to include to support the meaningful use of EHRs Stage 1.

In the 2014 Edition Release 2 final rule, we removed the 2011 Edition from the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to ensure there is no regulatory confusion involving administration of ONC’s rules and the rules of other agencies.
