The Commission of the Clinical Specialty CCS represents the professional interests of doctors specialising in allergy and clinical immunology of the FMH as well as the candidates for this title.
In this context, the CCS performs the functions of a "medical specialist" within the meaning of the definition of the medical chamber of the FMH, which were transferred to the SSAI in allergology and immunology on account of the practical medical activity carried out by some of its members. The CCS represents the practicing medical members of the SGAI against the FMH, the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG), the Federal Social Insurance Office (BSV), the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences, Swissmedic and other authorities regulating medical practice.
The CCS is in particular responsible for further training (including examinations), using the Subcommission on Postgraduate and Continuind Education (SPCE) and the Subcommission on Exams (SE).
The CCS also takes care of the quality assurance of medical activities in allergology and immunology as well as the tariffs.
The CCS deals with the problems of the professional policy, which concerns the specialist area and in the wider sense the medical profession. It employs the Subcommission of Professional Policy SPP.
The CCS also supervises the quality assurance according to the FMH regulations, for which the subcommission on Quality Managment (SQM) was established.
The CCS is also interested in the problems of immunological laboratory diagnostics, which are the responsibility of the Commission on Laboratory Diagnostics (CLD) of SSAI.
