The following editorial focuses on CoC Standard 5.8 for curative-intent resection of primary pulmonary malignancy. We offer a summary of Standard 5.8, and relevant data upon which it is based, in hopes of improving implementation in 2021 and improving compliance, which will first be assessed during site reviews taking place in 2022. We also describe best practices for pathologists, registrars and surgeons to achieve these compliance goals.
