A Code of Practice has been developed from the AdvaMed Code of Ethics as applied by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry.
The IFCC Executive Board invited all IFCC Corporate Members to join in into the IFCC Townhall for Corporate Members. It was a unique opportunity to hear directly from the IFCC leadership on those areas of most interest to all of our member companies. The EB answered questions, discussed topics, burning issues, how the IFCC could enhance the collaboration with its corporate members, etc…It was a great opportunity to bring everyone together and allow for exchange of ideas and free communication between the Executive Board and Corporate Membership.
