The North American Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (NAFCC) was formed in December of 2014, representing the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) and the Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists (CSCC), both member societies of the IFCC. The NAFCC was recognized by the IFCC in February of 2015. The NAFCC was formed in response to changes to the structure of the IFCC Executive Board to allow each federation to nominate a member to the EB, thus providing for regional representation of all IFCC member societies on the EB.

The AACC or CSCC Boards will approve a member to serve as the NAFCC representative to the IFCC EB, alternating between the AACC and CSCC with each new EB election cycle. The first representative for the period of 2015-2017 will be Dr. David Kinniburgh, President of the CSCC (2013 - 2015) and a member of the AACC. The AACC will nominate a representative to fill the election cycle of 2018-2020.

The primary responsibility of the NAFCC is to to facilitate high level communication in relation to the work of IFCC, including:

  • Developing and promoting the contribution of laboratory medicine to healthcare
  • Strategic planning, policy direction and implementation
