Development of the Eighth Edition FACT-JACIE Standards

Posted in :: 2019 Volume 8 :: Thursday, August 29th, 2019

By: Andra Moehring, MHA, FACT Standards Development Manager

The FACT-JACIE Standards Steering Committee initiated the development of the Eighth Edition FACT-JACIE International Standards for Hematopoietic Cellular Therapy Product Collection, Processing, and Administration this summer.

On July 2, 2019, FACT-JACIE Steering Committee members met in Barcelona, Spain to review the Standards Development process and timeline, and discuss specific issues that require review and consideration for this edition.

During the meeting, the committee reviewed and discussed feedback submitted by our colleagues via the FACT-JACIE Standards survey that was distributed in April 2019. FACT and JACIE appreciate the time and effort that went into providing feedback to help us improve our Standards. The survey was completed by 106 total respondents, in 19 different countries, who provided over 800 comments. Thank you for your feedback!

The subcommittees will begin their review next month, and will provide our colleagues with another opportunity to submit feedback during the public comment period scheduled for April 2020.

Final publication of the Eighth Edition FACT-JACIE International Standards is scheduled for March 2021.
