The AABB Standards for Immunohematology Reference Laboratories, 12th Edition, will take effect April 1, 2022. The Immunohematology Reference Laboratories (IRL) Standards Committee hopes to engage members in developing the 12th Edition and asks interested parties to submit comments to help shape these updates. The Committee will review all responses during its meeting, to be held in February 2021. Please submit comments by Friday, Feb. 12.
AABB will continue to hold the 60-day open comment period following the release of the proposed Standards, currently scheduled to begin in March 2021. Submitting comments prior to the February 2021 meeting will help guide the Committee as it works on the new edition.
