Update on Opportunity for Public Comment on Proposed IBCLC® Certification and Recertification Requirements

Thank you for taking the opportunity to comment on the Proposed IBCLC Certification & Recertification Requirements.

This is a public comment period on a conceptual proposal for revisions/updates to IBCLC certification programme requirements. IBLCE appreciates the thoughtful and robust response but as this is a conceptual proposal, with no final decisions made, IBLCE cannot respond to questions with respect to individual circumstances and it is premature to do so. Indeed, IBLCE very much wants to carefully review and consider the public comments. Thank you for understanding that the public comment period is to hear from organizational stakeholders prior to decision-making. Any finalized updates to IBCLC programme requirements will be announced publicly.

Thank you also for noting that this communication was communicated publicly in 18 languages via email and the IBLCE website. Given the scope and magnitude of this undertaking, IBLCE has requested that you please use the Survey Monkey link provided for public comment. IBLCE cannot guarantee your comment sent via a method other than the SurveyMonkey link will be reviewed.

If you would like your comments on the proposed IBCLC programme requirements to be reviewed, please submit your feedback via the Survey Monkey link available on the IBLCE website by 11:59 PM EDT on August 3.

Thank you for your participation in the public comment process.
