New version available of the CCMO Directive on the assessment of site suitability

The new version of the CCMO Directive on the assessment of the suitability of research centres (Toetsing geschiktheid onderzoeksinstelling, TGO) is now available (in Dutch) on the CCMO website.

The main reason for publishing this new version of the directive is the DCRF's revised version of the Site Suitability Declaration (VGO), which is part of the CCMO directive.

The aim of revising the VGO was to make the document more compatible with the daily practice of participating centres. New in the VGO, for example, is the replacement of 'VGO Part A' and 'Part B', by ’Site Suitability Declaration (VGO)' and 'Appendices', respectively.

Use of the new directive (and thus the revised version of the VGO) is mandatory from 1 June 2023.
