East European composer cited points to be considered? (9)


I believe the answer is:


'east' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I can't understand how they can define each other.

I don't understand how the remainder of the clue works.

(Other definitions for checklist that I've seen before include "Items to be performed" , "sort of schedule" , "Reminder, itemised" , "What's used to verify" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
