If education is completed from a noncompliant educator at any time before the effective date of January 1, 2022, but application for certification or recertification is submitted after that date, will the credits be accepted?

In order to afford a transitional period with respect to this new requirement, education completed prior to January 1, 2022 can be used toward certification and recertification.  Certificates dated January 1, 2022 or later will not count towards IBCLC certification or recertification if the educator is an entity, inclusive of manufacturers, distributors, or marketers, whose products fall within the WHO Code (e.g., infant formula, bottles, and teats).
