The long-awaited Single European Coding (SEC) system for tissues and cells is closer to being fully implemented. EU Member States are required to transpose the provisions of Directive (EU) 2015/565 into their national legislation by 29 October 2016 and then should apply the requirements on the SEC from 29 April 2017.

The ICCBBA, the organisation behind ISBT128, has prepared a guide "Simultaneous Implementation of the Single European Code and ISBT 128".

To support the SEC, the EU Commission has launched the EU Coding platform. The platform will allow public, free of charge access to the EU Tissue Establishments Compendium and the EU Tissue and Cell Product Compendium.
