Abstract: With more than 3 million new cases and 1.4 million deaths estimated for 2018 , cancer represents the second most important cause of death and morbidity in the EU-28 . Population-based cancer registration represents the 'gold' standard for the provision of unbiased information on cancer burden in a defined population and how it is changing over time. Population-based cancer registries (PBCRs) collect, manage and analyse data on patients diagnosed with cancer within a defined geographical area over a certain calendar period. They are invaluable resources for the clinical and epidemiological investigation of cancer and have a unique role in supporting public health officials and agencies in the planning and evaluation of cancer prevention and control programmes. The European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR) , in operation since 1990, was established within the framework of the Europe Against Cancer Programme of the European Commission. The ENCR promotes collaboration between cancer registries, defines data collection standards, and supports cancer registries as data providers for the supply of information necessary to quantify and monitor the burden of cancer in the European Union and Europe .
