The European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) is an international non-profit association (AISBL), established under the laws of Belgium.

The association is governed by the Belgian law of 27 June 1921 regarding non-profit associations, international non-profit associations and foundations, and its subsequent amendments.
