Legal & Regulatory Affairs Committee

The Legal & Regulatory Affairs Committee was established in 2017 to guide the EBMT’s interactions with national and European regulatory authorities and other bodies.

The Committee anticipates a demanding workload and is happy to receive expressions of interest in joining from other EBMT colleagues with an interest in regulatory matters.


Committee Objectives

The LRAC will build on existing relationships and play a watchdog role in terms of reporting on changes in regulations and guidelines that affect our sector.


  • 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.
  • Prepare the EBMT’s contribution to the EU’s evaluation of the Tissue and Cells Directives.
