NJ State Cancer Registry

The NJSCR is a population-based registry, mandated by state law, that collects data on all cancer cases diagnosed and/or treated in New Jersey since October 1, 1978. It is a member of the NAACCR, the NPCR, and other certification bodies.

Cancer Reporting

All health care facilities, physician, dentists, labs, ambulatory care facilities and other health care providers that diagnose or provide treatment for cancer patients must report cancer cases to the NJSCR (see Reportable List). All abstracting work performed by a health care facility which diagnoses or treats 100 or more cases per year must be performed by a Certified Tumor Registrar who is certified by the National Cancer Registrars Association.

All cases of cancer and other specified tumors and precancerous diseases must be reported to the NJSCR within six months of diagnosis, or three months of discharge, whichever is sooner. A cancer registry abstract must be completed for each newly diagnosed case. A separate abstract must be completed for each primary. A health care facility that fails to report cases of cancer electronically, as required by regulation, within six months of diagnosis shall be liable to pay a penalty as stated in N.J.S.A. 26:2-106.

Reporting Methods
