Evaluation of Blood, Tissues and Cells legislation

EU legislation on quality and safety standards for blood, tissues and cells has been in place for more than a decade and in view of the changing landscape – greater use of technology, more disease outbreaks, and a more connected world – the Commission is going to evaluate whether this legislation has achieved its original objectives, is still fit for purpose, or whether there are gaps to be filled.

There will be a public consultation later in 2017 and the final report should be published in 2018
