Certification

General Information

One of the key activities of EUREF is certification of breast screening and diagnostic services.
Therefore we have developed a European programme for voluntary certification of high quality mammography services.

This certification allows tangible and demonstrable recognition of adherence to a recognised quality system and will take into account the special requirements of both symptomatic and screening services. It has been developed for the European Commission by EUREF in co-operation with the European Network of Breast Screening Programmes, competent departments of the European Commission, European agencies and other interested national authorities in Member States.
