EU legislation makes Blood, Tissues and Cells safer

The open public consultation evaluating the EU legal frameworks on blood, tissues and cells has found that that the majority of the respondents, who included both individual citizens and various groups, such as professional societies, donor and patient organisations and national authorities, consider that the legislation had made blood, tissues and cells safer in the EU.

Most respondents find that the legislation is not up-to-date with scientific, technological, epidemiological or societal developments and that the process of updating is not flexible or quick enough to adapt to them. They also believe that some requirements might be missing or are inadequate.
