The Blood Guide also includes the Good Practice Guidelines (GPGs) which provide standards for the implementation of quality systems in blood establishments and, where applicable, hospital blood banks. In accordance with European Commission Directive (EU) 2016/1214, the GPGs should be taken into account by EU member states in the implementation of quality systems in blood establishments.
