American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

NCDB Submission Deadline is Extended

January 30, 2014

The National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) submission deadline has been extended from January 31 to midnight Central Time Tuesday night, February 4, 2014.  Submissions made on or before February 4 are “on time” according to Standard 5.5.

The reason for the extension is software maintenance on the Datalinks system scheduled by the American College of Surgeons for the evening of January 31.

Some programs were given extensions for Standard 5.5.  The extended deadlines will not change.
