ENETS Centers of Excellence (CoE)

Accreditation and certification are methods to ensure quality by setting standards and following robust and transparent measurement processes.

These standards should help the patient to identify high-value service and therapy options. Healthcare professions benefit from increased recognition and ongoing improvements to their services. ENETS believes that its standard setting and its influence on professional organisations lead to a positive impact on patient outcomes.

In 2008, ENETS set up an accreditation /certification program which allows applying centres to display  

  • the competence and expertise of the multidisciplinary team
  • knowledge about and adherence to ENETS guidelines and
  • patient oriented care
  • to increase participation in clinical trials as well as
  • to establish a systematic approach for a collaborative continuous improvement and benchmark system for the participating centers.

62 CoEs have been accredited since 2009.

Dear valued visitor of this website,

In view of the corona crisis, ENETS, along with the certification company DQS, has decided to:

  • Postpone all onsite audits planned for 2020 to a time when travel and onsite audits are safe again in 2021.
  • Postpone the deadline for the submission of annual return data to 31 July 2021 (the platform will open from 1 April 2021).
  • The application deadline for the certification procedure will remain 30 April 2021.
  • For practical reasons, all on-site audits scheduled for 2021 will be shifted to 2022.

These decisions came into effect on 31 October 2020 and were confirmed in May 2021. The current rules and deadlines may change depending on the dynamics of the SARS CoV2 pandemic.

Wishing all the best for you, your families, and patients!

Kind regards,

Eva Tiensuu Janson
