Abstract: The first meeting of the Commission for the Certification of polio Eradication from the European Region was held in Paris on 4-6 March 1996. The composition and terms of reference of the Certification Commission were agreed. The Commission considered the relevance to the European Region of the guiding principles recommended at the First Meeting of the Global Commission in 1995. Progress towards polio eradication was progressing satisfactorily following Operation MECACAR, with increasing numbers of countries becoming polio-free and fewer foci of polio remaining. There had been improvements overall in surveillance, coverage and outcomes. The Regional Office for Europe's work plan was endorsed. The laboratory network was reviewed and the role of laboratory surveillance in the certification process was considered. The experiences of other industrialized countries (Canada and USA) which had already been certified to have eliminated polio were discussed. The Commission agreed the proposed timetable for certification for the European Region
