The EBMT Board agreed earlier in 2017 to establish a LRAC to guide the EBMT’s interactions with national and European regulatory authorities and other bodies.
The LRAC had its first teleconference on 6 June with the participation of the following members: Christian Chabannon (F), Jürgen Kuball (NL), Gerard Bos (NL) and Mikulas Hrubisko (SK). Other members who could not attend this call are Gunnar Kvalheim (NO) and Martin Hildebrandt (D). The LRAC is supported by Eoin McGrath, the JACIE Operations Manager.
The LRAC will build on the existing relationships and provide a ‘watchdog’ role in terms of regulations and guidelines that affect our sector. One of the first actions of the LRAC will be to contact EBMT members who are already acting in an expert capacity with the EU in order to bring their knowledge and experience into the LRAC. In addition, the LRAC will prepare the EBMT’s contribution to the EU’s evaluation of the Tissue and Cells Directives (see below).
