These Standards are guidelines to promote quality medical and laboratory practices throughout all phases of cord blood collection, banking, and release for administration to achieve consistent production of quality placental and umbilical cord blood units for administration. The Standards cover 1) collection of cord blood cells, regardless of the methodology or site of collection; 2) screening, testing, and eligibility determination of the maternal and infant donor according to Applicable Law; 3) all phases of processing, cryopreservation, and storage, including quarantine, testing, and characterization of the unit; 4) making the CB unit available for administration, either directly or through listing with a search registry; 5) the search and reservation process for selection of specific cord blood units; and 6) all transport or shipment of cord blood units, whether fresh or cryopreserved. Standards for umbilical cord tissue banking are covered in the FACT Common Standards for Cellular Therapies. Standards for the administration of cord blood cells, either allogeneic or autologous, are covered in the Clinical Program section of the FACT-JACIE International Standards for Cellular Therapy Product Collection, Processing, and Administration.
