Why become an inspector: Over 90% of current inspectors recommend being an inspector^ because participating in JACIE inspections is an excellent opportunity to learn about JACIE for your own programme and understand what is demanded by the standards, to see how other centres organise themselves, visit facilities outside of your country* and to network with like-minded colleagues.

When: October 4-5 2012

Where: Barcelona, Spain in the modernista Casa Convalescència, part of the UNESCO-listed Hospital Sant Pau complex. 

Description: The course is aimed at cellular therapy professionals who are interested in becoming JACIE inspectors. The course covers the JACIE process, auditing techniques, reporting, information gathering and interpretation of the standards.

Who can attend: Participation is subject to meeting specific criteria - see here for the criteria to be an Inspector.

Fees: There is no fee for attending this course which also includes catering and materials but participants must cover their own travel and accommodation costs. Barcelona is well connected to most cities in Europe with low-cost airlines and there are reasonably priced hotels close to the venue.

Lanugage: English.
