We would like to bring to your attention two workshops/meetings being co-organized in 2020 by JCTLM Members and under JCTLM auspices that will bring together various stakeholders with an interest in Standards and Metrology in Laboratory Medicine. Registration for both meetings is now open.
The first is being organized by ICHCLR on ‘Barriers to global standardization of clinical laboratory testing: reference materials and regulations’ 29-30 May, 2020 in SEOUL, KOREA, immediately following IFCC WorldLab 2020 http://www.seoul2020.org/2020/home
The workshop will address the barriers to implementing global metrological traceability of clinical laboratory methods. Differences in country or region specific reference materials and regulatory requirements are barriers to standardization. ISO standards with JCTLM certified reference materials, reference measurement procedures and protocols provide tools for global standardization. Workshop topics will address technical and regulatory issues, impact of new biomarkers and technologies, approaches to prioritization of tests for standardization, and conclude with issuing recommendations for improved approaches to achieve globally standardized patient test results.

The second workshop is being organized by NIM (China), NIFDC (China ) and the BIPM, with the theme of ‘Therapeutics and Diagnostics: Measurements, Standards, Quality and Safety’
An International Workshop on Research and Quality Assurance, July 13-15, 2020, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China.
The Therapeutics and Diagnostics (TD) international workshop is jointly organized by NIM, BIPM and NIFDC and is held every two years. The first and second TD workshops were held in Chengdu, China in 2016 and 2018, attracting over 450 attendees from international organizations, National Metrology Institutes (NMIs), academic institutions and industries each year. In 2020, under the theme of “Measurements, Standards, Quality and Safety”, the 3rd TD workshop will be held in Nanjing, China on July 13-15, 2020 (July 12 for on-site registration). The workshop will present the latest research and technological developments in measurement methods and standards for therapeutics characterization and advances in IVD measurements and their standardization, and covering all classes of analytes.
The workshop session themes are:
1) Drug characterization and quality assurance
2) Research and quality control for in vitro diagnostics
3) Reference standards, regulation and metrology
