The Alliance for Ethical International Recruitment Practices (Alliance) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to ensure that all foreign-educated professionals are recruited in a fair, ethical, and transparent manner for employment in the U.S. In 2009, the Alliance launched the Voluntary Code of Ethical Conduct for the Recruitment of Foreign-Educated Health Professionals to the United States, which was developed by stakeholders with different perspectives across the health care sector and defines fair and transparent recruitment practices. In 2017, this code was updated and is now called the Health Care Code for Ethical International Recruitment and Employment Practices (the “Code”). Link to Code

In 2010, the Alliance established a certification program for organizations that recruit foreign-educated health professionals (FEHPs) that demonstrate that their recruitment and employment practices fully conform to the tenets of the Code. Such organizations include temporary staffing firms, placement firms, and health care providers. This Certification Application sets forth the requirements for certification. Organizations interested in obtaining certification should complete the application and submit it along with the specified supporting documentation to the Alliance for review. If approved, the organization is authorized to use the Alliance’s Certification Seal in its recruitment efforts.

Any information provided in the application process will be kept completely confidential – the Alliance strictly protects any proprietary information disclosed by your organization.
