Accreditation of national CME activities

Accreditation of national CME activities

If a country has no CME system at all and no accreditation institution/committee,
accreditation of national events may be handled by the EU-ACME office through the
EBU Accreditation Committee.

Before the meeting:

The CME organiser/provider must apply online at least 2 months before meeting takes place. During the application process the CME organiser/provider will have to:

  • register as CME provider
  • complete online application form;
  • upload mandatory documents:
    • A detailed (draft) programme;
    • List of members of a scientific committee;
    • Conflict of Interests (all members of the scientific committee); 
    • Director’s Declaration (chair of the scientific committee);
    • Declaration on Disclosure

NB. All documents should be in English.

The EU-ACME office check the application and issue an Invoice. After the payment is fulfilled the application is forwarded to the EBU Accreditation Committee for evaluation and accreditation.

The EU-ACME office confirms the Committee’s decision and issues the Accreditation certificate, if applicable.

During the meeting:

The CME organiser/provider is expected to communicate clearly to participants that the event is accredited (web site, programme book, certificate of attendance) and how attendance is verified. Participants ought to be told where to sing the list of attendance and/or scan their EU-ACME membership cards in order to register for credits.

The EU-ACME office offers assistance in providing logistical support for the obligatory attendance verification.

After the meeting:

  • the organiser returns the scanners or the list with the participants’ EU-ACME member IDs (if applicable) to the EU-ACME office;
  • The EU-ACME office adds the number of credits allocated to the meeting to the accounts of the members participating in the EU-ACME programme in its database.
