Changes to JACIE application fees for 2015

With effect from 1 January 2015, new application fees along with a discount scheme will be introduced.

New Fees
The new fees are as follows:
  • Registration fee: €3,500 (applied to all applications including for re-accreditation and non-refundable)
  • Fee per site: €2,100 (First clinical / collection / processing site)
  • Fee per additional site: €1,000
More details on the new fees are available at www.jacie.org/fees-2015.

Non-EBMT members: Where a clinical centre is not a member of the EBMT, double fees apply. More information on EBMT membership is available here (www.ebmt.org).

Discount
Applications from centres whose staff members have participated in an inspection event(s) in the 4 years preceding submission of the new application will qualify for a discount of 10% per event up to a maximum of 20%.

The discount scheme is designed to compensate centres that actively support the accreditation programme by releasing staff members to participate in inspections. This willingness to share the effort has been and remains one of the fundamental factors for sustaining the success of the JACIE programme.

This is the first JACIE fee increase since 1 January 2009. Since then inspections have increased from 23 in 2009 to 57 in 2013 with the associated increase in inspectors’ travel and other costs including the per diem payment introduced in 2013.
It is hoped that the introduction of the new fees will allow JACIE to provide more support to the centres and the inspectors, provide more education and training as well as to improve processes for inspectors and centres.

The increase was approved by the EBMT Executive Committee on 17 July 2015.

JACIE is run on a not-for-profit basis in line with the EBMT mission and values. JACIE relies almost exclusively on accreditation fees in order to support standard-setting and accreditation activities. The principal costs come from maintaining the small Accreditation Office team in Barcelona and Inspectors' travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses. Other activities include supporting the standards review process, inspector training and systems support and development.
