All the other countries may recognise EACCME® credits on a voluntary basis. For these countries you will also need to apply to the central or relevant regional accreditation authority.

USA

The UEMS-EACCME® has had an agreement of mutual recognition of credits with the American Medical Association (AMA) for live educational events and for e-learning materials since the year 2000. The agreement was renewed in 2014 for another 4 years. 

The issue of territoriality is very important; both organizations are fully responsible for the activities taking place or organized within their remit. The UEMS-EACCME® is the central body for accrediting events in Europe and the AMA is the central body for recognition of CME credits in the USA.

E-learning activities need to be certified for credit by the process in place where the CME provider is based, i.e. AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for U.S. CME providers and ECMEC® credit for organizations in countries that are represented by the UEMS.

Canada

The UEMS-EACCME® has an agreement of mutual recognition of credits with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) for live educational events since the year 2011.

The issue of territoriality is very important; both organizations are fully responsible for the activities taking place or organized within their remit. The UEMS-EACCME® is the central body for accrediting events in Europe and the RCPSC is the central body for accrediting events in Canada through its accredited providers.
