Accreditation Program Overview

AABB's Accreditation Program strives to improve the quality and safety of collecting, processing, testing, distributing and administering blood and blood products. The Accreditation Program assesses the quality and operational systems in place within the facility. The basis for assessment includes compliance with Standards, Code of Federal Regulations and federal guidance documents.

This independent assessment of a facility’s operations helps the facility to prepare for other inspections and serves as a valuable tool to improve both compliance and operations. Accreditation is granted for collection, processing, testing, distribution, and administration of blood and blood components; hematopoietic progenitor cell activities; cord blood activities; perioperative activities; relationship testing activities; immunohematology reference laboratories; molecular testing of red cell, platelet and neutrophil antigens, and out of-hospital transfusion administration services for both domestic and international facilities.

AABB’s Accreditation Program is accredited by ISQua, the International Society for Quality in Health Care.
