Purpose Statement

The Radiology Coding Certification Board (RCCB) is a not-for-profit organization established in May 2000, to promote the highest standards of radiology coding through the credentialing of radiology coders. Certification demonstrates a commitment and interest in providing only the highest quality radiology coding in compliance with federal regulations. The RCCB is a fully autonomous entity, independent of any other association or society. This independence allows RCCB to maintain integrity concerning policy matters related to credentialing.

The RCCB issues certificates to individuals who successfully meet its standards, adhere to those standards, policies and procedures, and prepare for and pass the certification exam. These individuals may present themselves to the public as Radiology Certified Coders using the designation RCC following their name. This certification is recognized as a sign of achievement and excellence. A listing of credentialed radiology coders will be available for dissemination to the public.

The RCCB is governed by a Board of Directors whose responsibilities include consideration of applications; appointment of committees; supervision of the development and administration of examinations; development and review of performance standards; test data; and the RCCB standards, policies and procedures; and other administrative functions.
