Laboratories can apply for 1 to 3 modules, however Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE) is mandatory.

Accreditation Modules

Three modules are available:

  • Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE)
  • Transesophageal Echocardiogragphy (TEE)
  • Stress Echo (SE)

For each module, two levels are available:

  • Standard accreditation: set to provide basic laboratory standards for an optimal clinical service
  • Advanced accreditation: set to establish a fewer number of advanced laboratories in each country, whereby in addition to standard criteria, they may be providing extensive teaching and research, and cover all modules.


Registration is a 3 step process:


STEP 1: Prove that the clinical head or (for standard) a permanent member of staff is EACVI or certified by your National Society. Further information on EACVI certification click here.
You will need to send the certificates (photocopy/scan or photo) via email

STEP 2: laboratories wishing to apply for EACVI Lab Accreditation must complete and send a registration request  to the EACVI Accreditation office -  

STEP 3: Within two weeks, the EACVI Accreditation Office will respond with confirmation of your registration along with access details to access to the EACVI Laboratory Accreditation online platform and user guide.

*We encourage your application to contain the EACVI certification and thus any other alternative will be meticulously reviewed by the accreditation office until final acceptance.

Heads of laboratory should nominate a person who will be responsible for completing the forms on the EACVI Laboratory smart sheet.
The appointed person will receive further information on how to manage the smartsheet after receipt of payment.

Please note: Laboratories that achieve accreditation status could be selected at random for a visitation by the Committee to verify their submitted information.


Standard 500 € each if applications received separately
Advanced              250 € for any additional modalities applied for at the same time

In other words:

  • Each module is 500 € (TTE mandatory, TEE or Stress Echo). Any additional module applied at the same time is 250€.
  • If subsequent modules are applied for separately, they constitute a separate application and therefore the cost is 500€.
  • Application fees are payable when enrolling to the EACVI Laboratory Accreditation process by completing the registration request and are not refundable
  • TTE is obligatory

Application modules can be submitted through the year.
