The present work deals with the UNHS (Universal Newborn Hearing Screening) and gives an overview of the current status of 7 selected countries within Europe. Pointing out the process from first screening to final diagnosis, tracking and level of overall screening rate is, the various counties are put in perspective. Furthermore, the meaningfulness and importance of the screening procedures are mentioned. In order to find relevant studies, research was targeted mainly to databases such as Google Schoolar and Pubmed. To conclude, UNHS is indispensable for the detection of early hearing disorders. The significancy of objective measurement is higher than subjective measurement procedures. All countries state that the lever of collaboration of all parties involved within the process of UNHS, is crucial for success, the sooner a final diagnosis can be carried out, an intervention can be initiated. The established tracking centers (which are only partly common practice) allow an improvement of the follow-up rate and thus facilitate the administrative effort.
