The International Council for Commonality in Blood Banking Automation (ICCBBA) is seeking public comments on the draft version of the Implementation Guide Using the ISBT 128 Chain of Identity (CoI) Identifier (IG-050).
ICCBBA published the ISBT 128 Standard Chain of Identity (CoI) Identifier (ST-028) in December of 2022. Since that time, many sites have implemented the new data structure to document and maintain the chain of custody for patient-specific cell therapy manufacturing. ICCBBA drafted the implementation guide to provide guidance on how the CoI Identifier can be utilized in a variety of scenarios.
Interested individuals may submit comments via email. The submission deadline is Nov. 20.
