According to the Resolution CM/Res(2013)67, the certified Cultural Routes and the candidate networks undergo an evaluation to be awarded the "Cultural Route of the Council of Europe" certification awarded by the Governing Board of the EPA which is constituted of representatives from each EPA member States.

As the Governing Board of the EPA can seek advice from one or more independent expert to review applications, the EPA Secretariat places calls for independent expert applications every three years. After careful review of submitted applications, the EPA Secretariat constitutes a pool of experts eligible to provide opinions on the award of the “Cultural Route of the Council of Europe” certification and regular evaluation of Cultural Routes.

Experts are selected according to area of expertise, knowledge of the Cultural Routes programme, geographical coverage, gender and languages.
