The Catalogues of Requirements for each tumour entity are drawn up by the members of the Certification Commissions.
The ECC Certification Commissons are based on the already exsisting Certification Commissions of the German Cancer Society (DKG) and are complemented by country representatives and / or members of european scientific societies.
Each Certification Commission includes 30-40 representatives designated from scientific societies, professional associations, working groups and self-help groups. They thus integrate the expertise of the medical and non-medical specialties involved in the care of cancer patients.
The designated members of each tumour specific Certification Commission can be found under www.zertkomm.de.
The Certification Commission convene annually or biennially to discuss the results of the certified centres and to ensure timely updates of the Catalogues of Requirements.
