Reminder: Time for the Annual Update Period

Correction: The Annual Update Period is for July 15–September 30. This update is required for accredited cancer programs that will be surveyed in 2014 and 2015. 

  • Review ALL Eligibility Requirement (ER) screens that describe your program’s cancer-related resources and services and upload required documentation that may have been revised since the last year (for example, policies, procedures) that describe how these services are provided. If a document has not been revised since your 2012 review, you do not need to upload a new document. If you do upload a revised version of a document that matches your current practice or process, you can delete the older version of the same document.
  • As appropriate to each screen, enter the 2013 date that the revised documentation was discussed at a cancer committee meeting. If a new date cannot be added, override the 2012 date.
  • There will be no additional SAR standard screens to be completed during this period.
The resource and service information completed as part of the ER will be used to update your facility’s profile in the CoC Hospital Locator.

If you require further assistance or have questions, please contact  Please include “Annual Update” in the subject line of your e-mail.
