For research projects as big as PERSIAN cohort, surveillance systems are of crucial importance. The quality control team at the initial enrollment phase has a clear checklist to properly address a variety of quality measures of data acquisition. They cover all three aspects of the data and specimen acquisition process: general questionnaires and anthropometric measurements, medical and disease screening questionnaires, and biologic samples acquisition and biobank maintenance. In December 2015 the third surveillance took place and FCS scored excellent with minimal flaws. Minor draw backs are to be taken care of at the next clean up phase in March 2016.
