Accreditation versus recognition

CPD/CME activities get recognised when the standard pathway of EACCME® accreditation is not followed but the activity has widely recognised educational and/or CPD value (i.e. publication in a peer review journal with an established and recognized editorial process) and the medical specialist has decided to obtain CPD/CME credits for an activity that has been certified for high quality in a process other than CPD/CME accreditation (i.e. peer review of an article, acceptance of the lecture/paper for presentation at an accredited CPD/CME event etc.). 
The EACCME accredits the following activities:
  • Live educational events
  • E-learning materials
The EACCME recognises the following activities:
  • Reviewing scientific and educational material (REV) 
  • Publishing scientific and educational material (PUB) 
  • Learning by Teaching (LbT) 
  • Examiner in a UEMS exam
