EFCC becomes EFLM

Published: Tuesday, March 27, 2012

The EFCC has changed its abbreviation to EFLM, European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine and a new logo is also replacing the old one.

The Executive Board of the European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine has become aware that the abbreviation EFCC is often misidentified as IFCC by other international organizations, National Societies and other stakeholders as well as by individuals from the profession.

In the past, this has caused confusion and sometimes has undermined the identity of the Federation.

After consultation with National Representatives and Presidents of our Member Societies, the Executive Board has agreed to adopt EFLM to replace EFCC as the acronym to describe the Federation.  The full name of the Federation remains unchanged: European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine.
