2010) namely to: — build on existing international guidance; — to distil out key fundamental requirements; — to focus on tissue or cell products that are commonly traded across international frontiers; and — to produce clear, user-friendly documents. Accordingly, existing international guidance and regulations were reviewed to identifiy cross-cutting core requirements and to identify core requirements for specific tissues and cells. The resulting draft document aims to assist regulators, tissue bank operators and tissue and cell transplant surgeons globally by providing guidance on safety and quality requirements for the most used and distributed human tissues and cells.

There is a continuing need to ensure that all national regulatory authorities with limited resources have ready access to reliable and up-to-date information when assessing TSE risks and evaluating product safety. That information includes guidance to help minimize or eliminate the risk for transmitting BSE and vCJD to humans via biologicals and other medicinal products. int/biologicals). 18 regarding allogeneic transplantation accepted in May 2005.
