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.

Recently EUREF has started a collaboration with ItalCert and BCCcert regarding the execution of the EUREF certification programme. For more information, including on how apply for this certification, please visit https://www.breastscreeningcertification.com/

Latest news

Updated version of European breast tomosynthesis QC protocol (version 1.03)

Changes compared to version 1.01:

  • The dose reference values have been changed to limiting values.
  • The limiting dose value for 20 mm PMMA thickness has changed from 1.0 mGy to 1.2 mGy. This has been done because feedback was received and was noted that the value of 1.0 mGy was difficult to achieve with sufficient image quality for DBT systems.
  • Some text has been added regarding the mode in which mages have to be made in some methods of measurement.
