EUREF, the European Reference Organisation for Quality Assured Breast Screening and Diagnostic Services, is a pan European organisation, widely drawn from different Member States and is operated on a non-profit making basis.  At the present time the administrative office is located in Nijmegen where facilities and administrative staff are available. The goal of EUREF is to promote high quality mamma-care in Europe.

Current European experience is that breast services vary considerably in the quality of organisation, delivery and professional support. EUREF believes it is neither appropriate nor desirable for women in Europe to be subject to such haphazard standards of care when breast cancer is so prevalent and causes such concern.

EUREF commits itself to the development and dissemination of the European Guidelines, Certification of breast services and mammography equipment, Training and will provide support and advice on such issues upon request.
