Verification of burn centres is a program of the European Burn Association (EBA). It is an evaluation program designed to verify a burn centre’s resources that are required for the provision of optimal care to burn patients from the time of injury through rehabilitation. Elements of this voluntary program include an application, self-assessment questionnaire, an on-site evaluation by members of the EBA Certification Committee. A written report of the site visit team is reviewed by the EBA Certification Committee.

Burn Centre verification provides a true mark of distinction for a burn centre. It is an indicator to government, third-party payers, patients and their families, and verification organizations that the centre provides high quality patient care and meets the demanding standards for organizational structure, personnel qualifications, facilities resources and medical care services.

The verification consists of a number of steps such as:

  1. Information request
  2. Application
  3. Self-Assessment form and settle a date for visit
  4. Review Self-Assessment form
  5. Visit Burn Centre
  6. Post-Visit
  7. Certificate

The entire verification process takes about two to six months.
