The European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) is an international non-profit association (AISBL), established under the laws of Belgium.

The association is governed by the Belgian law of 27 June 1921 regarding non-profit associations, international non-profit associations and foundations, and its subsequent amendments.

The English translation of the official EORTC statutes is provided here.

The official French and Dutch versions of the EORTC statutes are recorded in the Moniteur Belge / Belgisch Staatsblad.

In order to fulfil the sponsor’s legal obligations and to guarantee compliance with applicable national laws, the International Regulatory Affairs/Intergroup office at EORTC headquarters keeps its legal expertise up to date in more than 30 countries.
