Quality Management System

The EDTNA/ERCA further develops the QualityManagement Systemthroughout the Association and will apply for

ISO9001:2008 certification

Our entire management system is based on interrelated processes which are consistently linked to each other and to the overall balanced scorecard objectives. We agreed to use an analytical approach to identify and categorize our processes. This means that all our processes, associated documents and forms are cataloged into one of the key process categories.

Cooperation with other Associations

Establish closer links withrenal/non-renalinternational Associations:

Signed level 1 collaboration agreement with:

  • PCNA (Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association)

  • EPA/UNEPSA (European Paediatric Association/Union of

    National European Paediatric Societies and Associations)

    Presentation and approval of Financial Report 2010

    Alessandra Zampieron


    It was consolidated the financial status after many years of changes in finance management and service providers.

    Negative trend in financial results has been fully stopped.

    Membership services and educational offerings were maintained at the same good levels.

    Budget for expenses was respected and income goals were mostly reached.

    The main reserve remained stable and the capital was increased.

    FinancialConclusions 2010

    The result of the year 2010 shows a surplus of CHF 230.398 due to:

    good participation to the conference by delegates,

    excellent support from industry,

    prudent management of services and expenses,

    successful management of publications.

    FinancialConclusions 2010

    As the Association has most of the flexible assets in EURO and the EURO lost value in comparison to the CHF in 2010, the annual result is partially influenced by the correction of the assets in Euro in the bank expressed in CHF in the books.
