Edits Metafile and Associated Documents

The NAACCR Edits Metafile is a collection of data validations programs, or edits, applied to cancer data collected and reported in a standardized format, with standardized data definitions and recording instructions.  The development and release of new metafiles is overseen by the NAACCR Edits Workgroup, headed by the NAACCR Edits Administrator with the assistance of the Edits Metafile Administrator.

The NAACCR Edits Workgroup is composed of representatives from all the standard-setting agencies; representatives from the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA), from central cancer registries, and from many of the cancer registry software vendors; and other interested persons.  The workgroup meets as required to review progress in and schedule release of new metafiles, to review and comment on new or modified edits, and to discuss any edit-related issues.

A major update is typically released every August or September for use in the following calendar year.  If needed, a minor minor update is released the following March. The NAACCR Edits Metafile includes sample edits for each standard setter that reflect the reporting requirements of that standard setters. The NAACCR Edits metafile is primarily used by central cancer registries to create custom edit metafiles that meet their individual reporting requirements.

Below you will find a link to the NAACCR Edits Metafile and associated documents. Under the Clearinghouse tab you will find links to central registry specific edit metafiles that have been posted by central registries.
