The society of physicians of Germany and the society of panel physicians laid down in the "assessment criteria for guidelines in medical care" what kind of demands the medical selfadministration makes on guidelines. This measure also had the goal to support and strengthen the efforts of the AWMF for guidelines of high value. On the basis of these assessment criteria, a tool was compiled for the systematic registration and documentation of quality criteria for good guidelines for the first time in areas of German language. This check list is guided by the structure and content of the "Criteria for Appraisal for National Guidelines" by the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network.
