ECCO Guidelines

The work on guidelines resulted in a number of consensus conferences requiring more dedicated organisational work in that area and more planning for the future.

Since the initiation of the first project in 2006, the ECCO Guidelines have become standard references for IBD management in Europe and around the world. The guidelines are freely accessible and available for download on the ECCO Website and on JCC Online. ECCO is updating the Guidelines on a regular basis, which goes hand in hand with continuous ambition to work according to the highest standards. In this context, with the Guidelines generation 2018-2023, ECCO has started to use GRADE Methodology for its major Guidelines on Therapeutics in CD and in UC.

Due to the elaborate process of the ECCO Guidelines development, it is not allowed to translate or commercially reprint these publications without the proper permission process: as ECCO Guidelines statements and recommendations need to be read in the context of the supporting text, partial translation or reproduction is not allowed. For permissions and reprints, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Call for GRADE CD Treatment incl. surgery (2021-2023) is anticipated for Spring 2021.
