Dear IBCLC Stakeholder:

This Advisory Opinion provides guidance on policy pertaining to education provided by companies whose products fall within the scope of the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes.

We encourage you to read this new Advisory Opinion to understand what education earned after January 1, 2022, will be accepted for IBCLC eligibility or recertification requirements.
As always, this Advisory Opinion will be translated and made available in all IBLCE languages in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your commitment to serving breastfeeding families around the world. 

The Board and Staff of IBLCE
