Call for expressions of interest as Commission appointees to the new Commission expert group on rare diseases

The European Union Committee of Experts on Rare Diseases (EUCERD) has come to the end of its three year mandate during which they have assisted the European Commission with the preparation and implementation of Community activities in the field of rare diseases, in cooperation and consultation with the specialised bodies in Member States, the relevant European authorities in the fields of research and public health action and other relevant stakeholders acting in the field.


The European Commission acknowledges the value and importance of the tasks taken up by EUCERD and published on 30 July 2013 a Decision to establish a "Commission expert group on rare diseases", clearly illustrating the continuing need for support in this area. In this decision general rules regarding the criteria and procedures to appoint members are written down.


The Commission now calls upon European level patients’ organisations, professional associations, scientific societies and associations producing products or providing services in the field of rare diseases to express their interest and appoint their representatives.
