JCTLM Declaration of Cooperation

JCTLM - Declaration of Cooperation INTRO

JCTLM - Declaration of Cooperation between the BIPM, the IFCC and ILAC

The Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine (JCTLM) was established in response to the European Community Directive 98/79/EC on in vitro medical devices.

It was created in 2002 through a Declaration of Cooperation between:

  • the International Bureau of Weights and Mesures (BIPM),
  • the International Federation for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC), and
  • the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC)

The Declaration of Cooperation was revised and re-signed in 2019, to facilitate expansion of the JCTLM Executive Committee to include additional organizations in its membership from further branches of laboratory medicine.
