The "BASICS+, 5 th Belgrade Summit of Interventional Cardiologists" is accredited by the European Board of Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 24 credit hours of External CME credits.

Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity. EBAC works in cooperation with the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).

In compliance with EBAC/ EACCME guidelines, all speakers/ chairpersons participating in this programme have disclosed potential conflicts of interest that might cause a bias in the presentations. The Organising Committee is responsible for ensuring that all potential conflicts of interest relevant to the programme are declared to the audience prior to the CME activities.

Symposium "Inovacija znanja 2009" in Serbian, that is organized from April 06-07, 2009, is not included in EBAC accreditation. Only BASICS+ is accredited by EBAC.
