Croatia cites JACIE in regulations

Croatia joined the European Union on 1 July 2013. As part of the need to align national legislation with EU law, EU Directive 2004/23/EC and the supporting directives were transposed into Croatia law through the Act on the Application of Human Tissues and Cells. This Act is further supported by a series of ordinances. Since June 2013, Article 35(2) of the Ordinance on the conditions in terms of premises, personnel, medical and technical equipment and quality system for the performance of the activities of collection, procurement, testing, processing, preservation, storage and distribution of human tissues and cells cites JACIE as a requirement for HPC banks.

This is good news as it shows that JACIE accreditation can be a solution for regulatory agencies as they meet their obligations under European and national regulations. 
Croatia joins a number of other European states that cite JACIE among their authorisation or social insurance regulations. More information is available at Regulations & guidelines.
