A Resolution of the Council and the Ministers for Health of the Member States meeting within the Council of 13 November 1992 on the monitoring and surveillance of communicable diseases invites the Commission to consider arrangements for cooperation between the Member States in this field.

The Commission is invited to produce a report by November 1993, inter alia examining:

- existing networks (including data processing networks) and the desirability of establishing or maintaining coordination between them;
- the value of collecting data from Member States on a limited number of rare and serious diseases which require large samples for epidemiological study;
- the need for better utilization of relevant findings of research programmes and better integration of pilot projects undertaken by the Community and the Member States on communicable disease;
- the resources needed to implement any proposals, the benefits which may be expected and the the use of pilot projects before proposals are implemented;

For assistance in the preparation of the report, the Commission is invited to consult experts drawn from and nominated by the Member States with experience in the management of existing intergovernmental networks on communicable diseases.
