Where does the accreditation process take place?
The whole accreditation process takes place online: services.ebac-cme.org
Which kind of educational programmes does EBAC accredit?
EBAC accredits live educational events as well as all types of enduring materials, and e-learning (incl. micro e-learning), for more information please read here.
EBAC accredits international educational activities (except live educational activities in the USA and Canada) or national activities for which international participation can be expected. EBAC offers to accredit national activities without an international audience in case that there is no national accreditation system in place.
Does a CME Provider has to apply for EBAC accreditation and national accrediation in parallel?
Since EBAC accreditation is not competitive, but rather subsidiary to accreditation by national accreditation systems, applying in parallel for national accreditation maybe necessary to meet the needs of native participants (mandatory for Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
Does EBAC accredit sponsored activities?
EBAC accredits sponsored activities, which comply with the IACPDA Consensus Statement for Independence and Funding of CME/CPD.
Does the accreditation process need to be completed before the activity takes place?
Yes. CME accreditation for educational activities will only be granted before they have started/ been launched online. With this regard EBAC recommends to have an application fully completed 6 weeks prior to when the activity is going to start.
