Doctors’ attendance must be recorded at the beginning of each and every session. The hard copy of the attendance list should bear the participants’ names, MCR numbers and signatures. The doctors’ attendance must be submitted electronically within 20 days after the CME event, by entering the MCR numbers of the participants (Cat 1A & Cat 1B) and speakers (Cat 1B). Click here to submit electronically.
Following this, hard copies of the attendance record for Cat 1B must be submitted to the SMC Secretariat immediately for audit before CME points can be credited into the doctors’ accounts.

Attendance submitted more than 12 weeks after a CME event will be considered as a late submission and the CME claims will be rejected. CME Providers who are late in submitting attendance records for more than 3 events will be blacklisted. This means that they will not be allowed to submit applications for accreditation of future events.
Note: Under Status of the search criteria page for the submission of attendance records, please take note of the following when you select the 2 functions available under the list box:
a) Pending Submission - All outstanding events where attendance records (whether new or saved temporarily) have not been submitted electronically to the SMC.
b) Pending Approval – Attendance records which have been entered electronically and submitted via the system but are not yet approved because:
- SMC is still waiting for the hardcopies of attendance records for Cat 1B.
- SMC is in the process of checking the attendance records submitted.
CME providers are advised to keep these hard copies for a minimum period of 2 years for audit purposes.
For more information on how to submit attendance records, please refer to the Guide for CME Providers found here.
