Any organisation, public or private, that holds reliable and valuable data falling into the scope of Equasis may apply to become a data-provider of Equasis.

The "Data Provider Accreditation Procedure" is a public document available in this section which regulates the process from the time a potential data provider applies to the Equasis Management Unit until the Supervisory Committee takes the final decision.

The procedure describes the activities, including triggers, inputs, outputs and roles of the participant bodies.

Before considering applying, it should be noted that in the context of this accreditation procedure, data is to be provided to Equasis free of charge.
