Growing Demand for FACT Inspectors

Posted in :: 2019 Volume 5 :: Friday, May 17th, 2019

As FACT accreditation expands both globally and in scope with the addition of immune effector cell therapy, a need exists for additional experienced, knowledgeable cell therapy professionals to serve as FACT inspectors.

Eligible personnel at accredited organizations are encouraged to consider the value-added benefits when you serve as a volunteer FACT inspector.

Exposure to Exemplary Practices

As an inspector, you can observe how other facilities meet FACT Standards and bring home new ideas from the facilities you inspect and your interaction with experts on your inspection team.  There’s also evidence that organizations that don’t have an inspector have more difficulty complying with current standards.

Free Access to FACT Educational Resources

Volunteer inspectors have free access to both in-person and online educational events with an annual value of $1,840.

Contributions to Standards Development

Inspectors have greater opportunity to contribute to the development of FACT Standards. The opinions of FACT inspectors are always sought early in the process of developing new editions of standards and accreditation requirements. Eligibility of key FACT committees also requires that members be, or have been, a FACT inspector.

Professional Development

Your organization will appreciate your skills and experience when you serve as a volunteer FACT inspector. “FACT Inspector” also looks great on a curriculum vitae!

The American Society for Transplantation and Cellular Therapy’s (ASTCT) new elite Leadership Course designed to provide training and develop the next generation of leaders in the field of blood and marrow transplantation and cellular therapy encourages selected participants to serve as a FACT inspector.
