Large neonatal hearing screening programs have started in several countries over the last 2 to 3 years in the European Union, in the United States, and in many other countries. A number of national, European, and international projects currently focus on the practical implementation of such programs, but many who work in clinics may not be fully aware of the results achievable in this rapidly growing area. As regional and national screening programs are launched, substantial investment of resources will take place. The European Project AHEAD from the Biomedicine and Health Program of the European Commission (1996–1999) is showing an urgent need to evaluate effectiveness and to establish standards of best practice in the field. One of the briefs of project AHEAD was to organize a Consensus Development Conference on Hearing Screening. After a series of preparatory meetings, the Consensus Conference was held in Milan, on May 15 and 16, 1998. The conference was organized by Professor Ferdinando Grandori of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) Center of Biomedical Engineering at the Polytechnic of Milan; the scientific coordinator was Professor Mark Lutman of the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at the University of Southampton.
