In January 2012, JACIE complied information on regulatory aspects affecting transplant programmes that also impact on the JACIE inspection. The aim of the survey is to collect basic information on the different national regulations relevant to the JACIE Standards. With the results of the survey, we are able to provide inspectors with a list of items that they should expect to see during the inspection. This is especially relevant for when an inspector goes to visit a centre in another country and is
unfamiliar with local regulations.
