The Advisory and Coordination Group
The Advisory Board consists of representatives from the National Registries that are already in place: in Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Poland and UK.
It decides about having common criteria for the evidence ratings of entries, about linking some entries between the registries, and whether entries from a national registry should be put into Xchange, i.e. the European registry. This coordination group meets irregularly or only online.
