Three Key Documents: Call for membership to existing ERNs
The first call for new members to join existing 24 ERNs has been launched and the deadline has been extended until 3 December 2019, at 18h.
Following our previous news article we would like to inform you that three key documents are now available for candidates to prepare their applications for the Call for membership to existing ERNs.
Three key documents:
- The “ERN Assessment manual for applicants: description and procedures” provide the applicants with an overview of the assessment and the application process to join an existing ERN, called “Assessment programme of the ERNs”.
- The “ERN Assessment manual for applicants: operational criteria for the assessment of Healthcare Providers” describe the conditions that must be met to fulfill the criteria for a successful application by meeting the requirements outlined in the Commission Delegated Decision 2014/286/EU. The purpose of the operational criteria is to provide a common framework to assess Healthcare Providers’ compliance with this legislation.
- The “Specific criteria” document offers a clear overview of the criteria that applicants are required to fulfil in terms of diseases coverage and thresholds.
