With the establishment of CORE, WEO is creating a dialogue with endoscopy units around the globe in order to improve the quality of practice of endoscopy.

CORE is open to all sizes of endoscopy units, from multiple-room facilities to single-physician private offices. WEO will recognize endoscopy units performing upper intestinal endoscopy and/or colonoscopy and that meet certain criteria for endoscopy safety. These include standards of hygiene, disinfection, and training that WEO deems necessary for any practice of endoscopy.
