Open consultation on EDQM Guidelines

Please email Gillian.weaver@yahoo.com if you would like to receive the link to the consultation document. Gillian will collate comments prior to their return to the editors. Comments should be sent to Gillian by the 7th March 2019. The guide now includes a chapter on human milk. The message from the editors reads:

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the consultation for the 4th edition of the Guide to the Quality and Safety of Tissues and Cells for Human Application of the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM)/Council of Europe.

The 3rd edition of the Guide to the quality and safety of tissues and cells for human application was published in 2017. It collated updated information to provide quality and safety guidance for professionals involved in identifying potential donors, transplant co-ordinators managing the donation process, procurement units, tissue establishments processing and storing tissues and cells, and inspectors auditing any of these establishments.

In this 4th edition, we have aimed to address new advances in the field and have developed new chapters, monographs and Good Practice Guidelines (GPG) to provide guidance on topics not previously addressed.
