Abstract: In 2015 the European Commission Initiative for Breast Cancer (ECIBC) started the development of a voluntary Quality Assurance Scheme for Breast Cancer Services (the European QA scheme) under the Directorate-General Joint Research Centre (JRC) technical and scientific coordination. To support the JRC in this task, a Quality Assurance Scheme Development Group (QASDG), consisting of independent experts, was established. The European QA scheme's scope (The Scope) represented the first output of the development process of the European QA scheme. Via a public call for feedback, stakeholders and individual citizens were invited to provide their feedback on The Scope. The call was open from 17 February to 9 March 2016 and an on-line questionnaire via the EU Survey platform on the ECIBC website was made available. The JRC received a total of 63 valid responses, from 15 individuals (24% of total valid responses) and 48 organisations (76%). Considering individuals and organisations together, 23 out of 28 EU Member States (82%) contributed to this exercise. During a meeting held in Varese (Italy) in March 2016, the QASDG discussed how the results of the call for feedback should be reflected in The Scope. Decisions taken during that meeting were recorded in the meeting minutes and The Scope was modified accordingly. The Scope was finally approved by the QASDG on 16 May 2016 and made available for the public together with this report.
