NICER · National Institute for Cancer
Epidemiology and Registration

In mid-2018, the Swiss Federal Department of the Interior transferred the tasks of the National Agency for Cancer Registration (NACR) to the National Institute for Cancer Epidemiology and Registration (NICER).

The NICER Foundation has already performed a large number of the tasks listed in the Cancer Registration Act (CRA) in the past and is the Swiss Competence Center for National Cancer Registry Data.

  • Registration

    Cancer registries are unique in being able to provide adequate historical trend and population-based data to monitor changes in cancer risk or survival over long periods of time.

  • Statistics

    The cantonal cancer registries provide anonymised extracts from their database to the NICER Coordination Centre (NCC) on a yearly basis, which are merged to form the NICER database hosted by the NCC.
