Static List Review Decision - May 2014

NICE Technology Appraisal Guidance No.69; Liquid-based cytology for cervical screening

Static List Review

TA69; Liquid-based cytology for cervical screening was added to the static list in October 2007.

Guidance is moved to the static list following consultation with consultees and commentators when it is clear that there is no new research available that would have any material effect on the current guidance. Topics on the static list may be transferred back to the active list for further appraisal if new evidence becomes available that is likely to have a material effect on the last guidance issued.

As the appraisal has been on the static list for more than 5 years, NICE has gathered intelligence to ascertain whether there is any new evidence available relevant to this appraisal and whether this should be considered through the full review proposal process.

We have concluded that there is insufficient evidence available to suggest that a review of the guidance would lead to a change in the existing recommendations.

As a result, we have contacted stakeholders who were involved in the last review proposal for this appraisal to inform them that we have decided that TA69 should remain on the static list and no further action is required at this time.

However, if NICE is notified of a significant change to the evidence base at any stage in the future, this could trigger a formal review proposal.
