Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine (JCTLM)
Joint Committee:
  JCTLM – Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine
  JCTLM Executive Committee

JCTLM Working Groups:
  JCTLM Database WG: Reference Materials, Procedures and Measurement Laboratories
  JCTLM WG on Traceability: Education and Promotion
The JCTLM was created in 2002 through a Declaration of Cooperation between the International Committee of Weights and Mesures (CIPM), the International Federation for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC), and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) in response to the implementation of the European Community Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro medical devices. The Declaration of Cooperation was revised in 2012, following the revision of harmonized standards relating to higher order reference materials and methods.

The JCTLM Executive Committee oversees the operations of the JCTLM, and its Working Group 1 and Working Group 2 establish lists of available higher order reference materials, measurement procedures/methods and measurement laboratory services with respect to the technical basis laid down in the JCTLM Framework.

Meeting sessions

The programme will cover two sessions:

  1. Traceability in Action
  2. o Update from JCTLM
    o Why traceability matters to patients
    o Traceability in external quality assessment
    o Why traceability matters to manufacturers

  3. Traceability into the future
  4. o Clinical challenge - biomarkers in neurodegenerative disease
    o Developments in traceability in infectious diseases
    o Recent advances in traceability - a global perspective
    o Responding to the future of traceability

Poster session

Participants will have the opportunity to display posters for their work.

Participants wishing to present a poster should use the template available at:
