Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation
The Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) Working Group began in the year 2000 as an informal collaboration of people with an interest in addressing the shortcomings of present grading systems in healthcare.

Many international organizations have provided input into the development of the approach and have started using it.
