  • applications by other types of providers will be considered on a case by case basis 
as long as the application is supported by an appropriate medical specialist who will take responsibility for the application. This person must be registered with his/her National Regulatory Authority. The EACCME® will NOT consider for accreditation events where the content, format or faculty is influenced by industry.
The fee for an application to the EACCME® for the accreditation of LEEs is determined in accordance with the expected total attendance of learners and is not dependent on the number of ECMEC®s awarded.

The EACCME® reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change its fees at any time. An application already submitted will be charged at the rate applicable at the time that it was made. 
The applicant will have no right to reduce the expected number of participants after submission of the application. 
In some specialties, the UEMS-EACCME® has particular agreements with European Specialty Accreditation Boards (ESABs). Through mutual agreements with each of these, the UEMS-EACCME® will submit all eligible applications in these fields to the relevant ESAB for their specialist review. Accordingly, ESABs are entitled to issue an invoice to Providers in order to cover for their specific administrative tasks and provisions for quality assurance in their CME events.
