Cancer Reporting Entities

New Jersey State Cancer Registry

The New Jersey State Cancer Registry (NJSCR) is a population-based registry that collects data on all cancer cases diagnosed and/or treated in New Jersey since October 1, 1978. All health care facilities that diagnose or provide treatment for cancer patients must report cancer cases to the NJSCR.

All cases of cancer and other specified tumors and precancerous diseases must be reported to the NJSCR within six months of diagnosis. 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.
