Embryology practice is not regulated at the federal level and is only regulated by a very small number of states. Therefore, the certification in embryology is not required in the vast majority of cases.

Accordingly, at this time, certification offered by EMBCOL is voluntarily and is not required to practice embryology, nor it is officially recognized.

However, EMBCOL is playing an important role in self-regulating the practice of embryology and is engaged into the legislative activity that can affect embryology practice in the future. 

EMBCOL certification is prestigious and a number of outstanding practitioners have already became certified.
