Update: Verification of Iranian Credentials
June 5, 2015
Filed under: General

ECFMG is pleased to announce that it will resume processing of requests for verification of medical credentials issued by educational, health care, and medical registration/licensing institutions in Iran. As previously announced, ECFMG was not processing such requests, pending clarification of restrictions of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. On June 5, ECFMG was advised by OFAC officials that it is permitted to engage in verification activities for medical credentials issued in Iran.

ECFMG would like to thank all affected physicians and clients for their patience and cooperation while we worked toward positive resolution of this important issue.
