Liaison: International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC)
Links between the BIPM and the IFCC
- The IFCC is a major partner in the JCTLM.
- The IFCC is a member of the JCGM.
- The IFCC participates in the CCQM and the CCU.
The IFCC is a worldwide, non-political organization for clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine.
The mission of the IFCC's Scientific Division is to advance the science of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine and to apply it to the practice of Clinical Laboratory Science. It instigates and promotes theoretical and practical developments in the field of standards and standardisation in clinical chemistry.
The BIPM and the IFCC cooperate to ensure that data published by the IFCC, related in particular to chemical properties and measurements, makes appropriate consideration and reference to the SI units, metrological traceability and measurement uncertainty and to support the development and maintenance of a traceable measurement infrastructure for clinical chemistry and laboratory medicine.
