German Standards

A committee comprised of representatives from the ZKRD and its national cooperative partners develops and updates the “German Standards”. The aim of these standards is to guarantee a high level of quality and safety as well as to ensure that unified procedures are followed with respect to donor search, testing, acquisition, donation and transport of hematopoietic stem cell products.

The intention is to protect the interests of all donors and patients, while improving transparency for all national and international cooperative institutions.
