Summary: This revision to the EEG Guidelines is an update incorporating current EEG technology and practice. “Standards of practice in clinical electroencephalography” (previously Guideline 4) has been removed. It is currently undergoing revision through collaboration among multiple medical societies and will become part of “Qualifications and Responsibilities of Personnel Performing and Interpreting Clinical Neurophysiology Procedures.” The remaining guidelines are reordered and renumbered.
