European Cancer Centre Certification Programme

European Cancer Centre

Mission statement

The goal of the European Cancer Centre Certification (ECC) Programme is to implement ECCs and to improve the overall quality of cancer care within networks throughout Europe.

The ECC Programme aims to contribute to European initiatives like the European Commission’s Joint Action on Cancer (CanCon) and the European Commission Initiative on Breast Cancer (ECBIC) by implementing Comprehensive Cancer Care Networks (CCCN) in European member states and thereby improving the quality of cancer care.

The objectives are to:

  • standardized/uniform oncological health care services in all member states;
  • describe the quality of oncological health care services Europe-wide;
  • reduce differences in the quality of cancer health care services; and
  • establish a pan-European database to lay the foundations for comprehensive Europe-wide cancer health service research.
