The Council of Europe’s EDQM has participated last week in the Summit on Organ Trafficking and Transplant Tourism organised by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences of the Vatican State to raise awareness on organ trafficking and human trafficking for the purpose of organ removal.
The EDQM is proud to announce that its Quality Management System has been recognised compliant to the 2015 version of the ISO 9001 standard.
Good Practice Guidelines published in the “Guide to the Preparation, Use and Quality Assurance of Blood Components” will become mandatory within the 31 Member States of the European Union and the European Economic Area from 15 February 2018
Yesterday, the Spanish Health Secretary inaugurated in Madrid an international workshop organised by the EDQM and the ONT (Organización Nacional de Trasplantes) to train national focal points in the detection and prevention of organ trafficking.
Recognising the need to support the South Eastern European region in further fostering the key elements of a Blood Quality Management System (B-QM), the EDQM’s B-QM Working Group has conducted a training on Quality Management to meet the needs of blood establishments.
