Abstract: During the last two years the European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR) and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) have been working in preparing the 2015 ENCR-JRC call for data and developing the JRC-ENCR Quality Check software (QCS). The JRC Technical Report ‘A proposal on cancer data quality checks: one common procedure for European cancer registries’, published in November 2014, was the basis for preparing the 2015 data call protocol and developing the QCS. Nevertheless, there are some small differences in variables considered and their respective formats between the 2014 JRC Technical Report and the 2015 call for data protocol. In addition to that, quality checks for multiple primary tumours have been included in the QCS. Moreover, a few errors in the 2014 report were identified and were corrected in the present document. The objective of this addendum is to update version 1.0 of the JRC Technical Report ‘A proposal on cancer data quality checks: one common procedure for European cancer registries’ according to the 2015 ENCR-JRC call for data protocol, the QCS latest version and the feedback obtained from the users.
