ILAC – IFCC PARTNERSHIP

ILAC has a partnership with the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC).

Memorandum of Understanding

The ILAC-IFCC Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was re-signed on 14 January 2019 by the ILAC Chair, Etty Feller, and the IFCC President, Howard Morris.

The re-signing of this MoU reinforces the ongoing commitment of ILAC and IFCC to promote and cooperate to achieve common goals in the area of medical laboratory accreditation using ISO 15189 and related medical reference laboratory activities using ISO 15195.

Medical Laboratory Accreditation

ILAC and IFCC have produced a presentation, with commentary, on “Medical laboratory accreditation: what is it and why is it important?”. The presentation was produced following the publication of a related article by ILAC and IFCC. The presentation and article describe medical laboratory accreditation in compliance with ISO 15189:2012, the process for seeking accreditation, and the importance of accreditation to patients and the public, users of the laboratory, healthcare authorities and regulators, laboratory management and staff.
