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

The JCTLM 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) 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, and re-signed in April 2016.

The International Bureau Weights and Mesures (BIPM), the International Federation for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC), and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) agree to cooperate to establish a Joint Committee for Traceability in Laboratory Medicine, with the acronym JCTLM.

The goal of the JCTLM is to provide a worldwide platform to promote and give guidance on internationally recognized and accepted equivalence of measurements in Laboratory Medicine and traceability to appropriate measurement standards.
