IFCC WorldLab 2024 is accredited!

EFLM Continuing Professional Education Credit System – CPECS®

The 26th International Congress of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC), the 17th Congress of Arab Federation of Clinical Biology, the 10th Saudi Society for Clinical Chemistry Annual Meeting and the 8th UAEGDA International Disorders Conference are accredited by the EFLM CPECS® to deliver CPECS® credits for participants.

EFLM CPECS® is an administrative system that provides a quality assurance mechanism for the accreditation of continuing education programs and events offered based on high-quality continuing education content in laboratory medicine and relevant scientific topics.

In those countries where a national crediting system is not in place, the CPECS® system can directly represent the system adopted at national level for the certification of the educational events and may recognize CPECS® credits on a voluntary basis.


Breakdown of credits

A maximum of 19,5 CPECS® credits can be awarded for the educational sessions of the IFCC WorldLab 2024. Each participant has to attend at least 75% of each session to get CPECS® credits. Information on CPECS® credits per session can be found in the scientific program and the mobile app.

A board with a specific QR code will be placed inside each conference room. Each delegate interested in getting the CPECS® credits must scan the QR code at the entrance and at the exit of the room for every session. In order to scan the QR code the delegate has to use the dedicated Congress APP where a section will be entirely dedicated to the CPECS program.

Once the congress is over, only delegates with 75% of attendance will receive a specific email with the evaluation questionnaire for the sessions they attended. At the end of the whole process, they will automatically receive the CPECS® certificate.


Accreditation by the SCFHS

Delegates from Saudi Arabia who are interested in obtaining CME units (Accredited by the SCFHS) should adhere to the same guidelines set for CPECS credits.
At the end of the Congress, in order to get SCFHS CME credits, please send your request to SSCC email [email protected] and send a scanned copy of your certificate of attendance, together with your SCFHS registration number. Requests must be sent within 6th June at the latest.
