Standards & Accreditation 

Since 1957, AABB has developed voluntary standards for blood bank blood component collection, processing and transfusion and assessed compliance with these standards — as well as with the Code of Federal Regulations and federal guidance documents — through its accreditation program. By assessing the quality and operational systems in place within a facility, the program strives to improve the safety of collecting, processing, testing, distributing and administering blood and blood products.

In this section, you will find general information on each set of AABB standards as well as resources to assist in the implementation of those standards and in the successful management of the accreditation process. Also included within this section are lists of AABB-accredited facilities by activity.
