FACT-JACIE 9th Edition Standards: Public Consultation Announcement

JACIE Committee
Inspector Committee
Accreditation Committee
Quality Managers Committee

We are excited to announce that the 9th Edition of FACT-JACIE Standards, in development since September 2023, is nearing a significant milestone. Thanks to the dedication of our four sub-committees—Clinical, Collection, Processing, and Quality Management—and the Steering Committee, the Draft Standards are set to be released for public consultation.

It is important to note that the consultation is requested on the FACT-JACIE Standards only. The Standards Manual, which provides detailed explanations, evidence, and examples for centers and inspectors, will be developed in parallel and published after the Standards have been finalised. The estimated start date for the consultation is 30th June 2024 and all the information on how to provide the feedback will be provided on our website.

We encourage feedback from all individuals, national transplant societies, and stakeholders within the field of Cellular Therapy.

All feedback will be thoroughly reviewed by the Standards Steering Committee. For the first time, in an effort to enhance transparency, the Steering Committee will publish both the comments received and the rationale for either amending the Standards or maintaining the original text based on the consultation.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the members of the Sub-Committees and the Steering Committee for their hard work and ongoing commitment to the Standards development process.
