Become a FACT Cord Blood Inspector

Posted in :: 2019 Volume 9 :: Thursday, September 26th, 2019

Members of FACT-accredited cord blood banks are aware that FACT’s mission is to promote quality clinical and laboratory practice of cellular therapy and regenerative medicine. Eligible Cord Blood Bank personnel are encouraged to serve as a volunteer FACT inspector to enjoy the following value-added benefits:

Exposure to Exemplary Practices

As an inspector, you can observe how other facilities meet FACT Standards and bring home new ideas. Interaction with inspection team members also provides the opportunity to network and collaborate.

Professional Development

Improve your knowledge of FACT requirements and serve as an asset in ensuring your organization meets Standards. “FACT Inspector” also looks great on a curriculum vitae.

Influence

Inspectors have influence over FACT policies and requirements.  Input from FACT inspectors are sought in the process of developing new editions of Standards.

Free Access to FACT Educational Resources

As a volunteer, you will have free access to both in-person and online educational events with an annual value of $1,840.
