  • Documentation reviews of HCPs for both general and specific criteria;
  • Onsite audits (if needed online audits) of ERNs and HCPs;
  • Final technical reports.

The service providers will be requested also to conduct assessments based on ‘eligibility criteria’ and to set up an online support system to provide information to the applicant HCPs. In addition, for ERNs evaluations, the economic operator will provide final evaluation reports.

Budget: €10 million

Duration of the contract: 48 months
