In March 2021, the Spanish Society of Medical Physics task group on quality control of accelerators sent an online sur-vey to the medical physics services and units regarding some aspects related to the purpose of their work. The survey was created with three objectives: to weigh the variability in the quality control plans, to establish the degree of adherence to national and international recommendations and to tune the task group criteria with those of the medical physics services and units in our field.The survey results show great variability of criteria in all aspects and tests and confirm the difficulty of establishing a quality plan for this equipment that responds to the prioritization objectives and is applicable to all the existing circumstances within our field.A quality control program should be established based on an objective analysis of the failure modes which enables the decision of which tests to include, establishing the necessary resources and optimizing their use. The development of a recommendation generally applicable is not easy, especially if we take into account the existing variety of equipment, instru-ments and therapeutic techniques developed.
