€ Discount scheme for Active Inspectors

Applications from centres whose staff members have participated in an inspection event(s) in the 4 years preceding submission of the new application will qualify for a discount of 15% per event. Where the centre has more than one active inspector, a maximum discount of 20% applies.
The discount scheme is designed to compensate centres that actively support the accreditation programme by releasing staff members to participate in inspections. This willingness to share the effort has been and remains one of the fundamental factors for sustaining the success of the JACIE programme. For further details, please consult the Accreditation Office.

Applications for accreditation of bone marrow collection will incur no charge when they form part of a simultaneous application for clinical accreditation. Where an application is received for bone marrow collection with no associated clinical inspection, or with an apheresis and/or processing unit, then a fee will be charged.
