Recognition of CME credits
For accredited activities, EACCME credits can be exchanged for their national equivalent by contacting your national CME authority. EACCME credits are recognised throughout Europe and in North America.
A record of your CME credit status will also be kept for future reference.
To receive credits
Printing or downloading your CME and attendance certificates can only be done online after the Congress. Login into MyERS and either press the highlighted "Congress Certificates" button as shown below or alternatively go through the menu "Congress and Conferences > Get your certificates".
Please make sure you keep your badge number as it will be required for your identification.
Physicians should only claim those hours of credit spent in this educational activity.
Industry-sponsored sessions cannot be granted CME credits.
For German delegates:
German physicians will have to scan their badge to be accredited by the local Bayerische Landesärztekammer Ärztliche Fortbildung.
Each day, the physicians will have to scan their ERS Congress badge at a dedicated terminal in the registration area. Daily, the delegate has to sign in at 12.00 PM for the morning attendance and at 17.00 PM for the afternoon attendance.
After the conference the records will be sent to the Chamber where the credits will be accounted.
