18. The Minister shall determine the number of health communication centres and the regions served by them throughout Québec.
The Minister shall also determine the standards, specifications and quality criteria which a health communication centre must meet to be certified by the Minister and the date on which the centre becomes operational.
To ensure the maintenance of its certification by the Minister, a health communication centre must comply at all times with the prescriptions determined under the second paragraph and the performance criteria determined by the Minister. In case of non-compliance with such prescriptions or performance criteria and following a request to that effect by the agency responsible pursuant to the second paragraph of section 19, the Minister must require the health communication centre to take corrective action within such time as the Minister determines. If the centre does not comply, the Minister may apply the other measures provided for by this Act.
