CNT responsible Group 2 – Setting up of the registry
The SANCO project aimed at analyzing the different standards and guidelines used in tissue banks in Europe with regard to the quality and safety; identifying standard operating procedures to create a registry of tissues through a European database; creating models of training for staff and a model for the accreditation of European banks. The main result of this project was the preparation of two volumes of guidelines that were particularly useful for the implementation of European Directives in the field of tissues and cells.
