Related information

In January 2012, JACIE began compiling information on regulatory issues affecting transplant programmes that also impact on the JACIE inspection. The aim of the survey is to collect basic information on the different national regulations relevant to the JACIE Standards. With the results of the survey, we are able to provide inspectors with a list of items that they should expect to see during the inspection. This is especially relevant for when an inspector goes to visit a centre in another country and is unfamiliar with local regulations.  

The following countries have reported information: Austria, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom.
