The expert (visiting) panels are responsible for conducting the visits to the centres where the training programmes subject to assessment for the EURACE, EUROINF or EUROLABEL labels, or the Medicine Label based on the WFME standards are delivered.
They are made up of at least three members with experience in education quality assessment who represent the academic and/or professional sector. At a minimum, one of them should be from the specific discipline of the programme evaluated.
The agreements of the different panels of experts are reached on the basis of consensus to ensure that decisions are collegiate. In order to facilitate the dissemination of good practices in the assessment for the award of each label, the procedure offers the possibility of incorporating external, national or international observers on the visiting panels.
The procedure establishes the mechanisms necessary to ensure that members of the panel have no conflict of interest with the institutions subject to assessment for the EURACE, EUROINF or EUROLABEL labels, or the Medicine Label based on the WFME standards.
