International Council for Standardization in Haematology (ICSH): a new Executive Member of JCTLM12/16/2019
The JCTLM has welcomed the International Council for Standardization in Haematology (ICSH) as a new Executive Member. This was enabled by an updated Declaration of Cooperation between the three Founding Members of JCTLM:
• International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC)
• International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC)
• International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM)
This important collaboration brings expertise in clinical laboratory haematology to JCTLM and provides the opportunity to align the standardization and harmonization of haematology laboratory methods with the reference measurement system of JCTLM, further enhancing the aim of ‘Accurate results for patient care’.
