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 2022 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.
