The landmark Standards of Care (SoC) published in 2005 set out what high quality CF care is and how it can be delivered throughout Europe. The working group was revised in 2013 being reconfigured into three distinct workstreams which resulted in three documents published a leyar later; center framework, quality management and best practice guidelines the latter being updated in 2018. This updated standards for best practice in key aspects of CF care, in the context of a fast-moving and dynamic field. 
Since then, the constituency of membership has changed to reflect new strategic objectives and project and to represent all constituent professions in a high functioning CF MDT.
The European CF Society has always held that delivering high quality care is paramount. We believe that inequalities in levels of assistance across European countries are not acceptable, and every effort must be made to deliver high standards. Optimal care may not be an easily achievable target and in some less advantaged countries a stepwise approach may be the only deliverable approach, but the present standards should remain as a goal.
