FACT and JACIE announce the publication of an interim standard to the fourth edition of the FACT-JACIE International Standards for Cellular Therapy Product Collection, Processing, and Administration.

Standard B3.1.1 now requires that Program Directors have at least achieved specialist certification, and does not require that board certification be renewed or kept current. The use of the term "achieve" is believed to be compatible with international requirements, and programs are reminded that they must still comply with any applicable laws and regulations requiring recertification.

The interim standard will be effective on May 1, 2011. The following documents have been updated on the JACIE Document Centre:
  • 4th Ed. Standards v. 4.1
  • 4th Ed. Accreditation Manual v. 4.3
  • JACIE Inspection Checklist 4th ed ver.6
