COVID policy: The FDA/NCTR-MAQC 2022 Conference will be following the safety standards of both our venue (FDA) and any local or state guidelines.

Currently the FDA Office of Security and Emergency Management COVID-19 Safety Requirements for FDA Visitors and Contractors no longer include a Certification of Vaccination Form or a proof of a negative COVID-19 test when entering FDA facilities. If this standard evolves, the MAQC Society Annual Meeting policy will evolve to meet it. Please see here for more info: Public Meetings at the FDA White Oak Campus | FDA
