The accreditation as HPC guarantees that action medeor maintains the high standards established by the European Union.

In a selection process at the Department of the European Commission for Humanitarian Aid (ECHO), action medeor was accredited as a Central Procurement Centre for Humanitarian Aid (Humanitarian Procurement Centre / HPC).

There are only nine non governmental organisations (NGOs) which have obtained this accreditation worldwide. As HPC action medeor is authorised to function as a central procurement centre, providing relief supplies to European Union project partners (FPA).

FPAs have the possibility to order medical goods from medeor on a basis of "single bids".

action medeor fulfils the strict criteria established by ECHO, which sets high standards regarding transparency, pricing, performance and quality. These criteria have been verified by two European Union accountants in two audits at action medeor.
