ANCR - Association of Nordic Cancer Registries

The Association of Nordic Cancer Registries (ANCR) is the cooperative organ for the national registries of Denmark (inclusive Faroe Islands and Greenland), Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden.


The object of the Association is to provide a continuing, organized framework for the activities of the Nordic cancer registries to facilitate exchange of both scientific and technical information, to contribute to the uniformity of definitions used by the registries, and to facilitate the organisation of inter-Nordic studies and studies proposed by international organisations and various groups of individuals.

ANCR Board meetings are held twice a year. In connection with the fall meeting, ANCR holds a symposium which the individual countries take shifts in arranging.
