Thanks to all our inspectors

This year JACIE has performed 50 inspections with the participation of 112 inspectors in total and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the JACIE Inspectors. Their effort and commitment was demonstrated not only through participating in the onsite visits but in providing their continuous support during the entire process.

6th edition of FACT-JACIE Standards – Key dates

Applications: Centres that are planning to apply in 2014 or 2015 should pay attention to the following deadlines:

The 6th edition of the FACT-JACIE Cellular Therapy Standards, Accreditation Manual, Checklist and other associated documents will be published.
Final date for sending applications based on the 5th edition of the FACT-JACIE Standards. All applications after this date must be made under the 6th edition.

Final date to submit the complete pre-audit documentation under the 5th edition. Any centre that submits all or part of pre-audit documentation after 31/05/2015 will have to restart the application process under the 6th edition of the Standards and submit a new application.

The new edition of the Standards becomes effective. Centres already accredited under the 5th edition will not have their accreditation affected. However, all centres are required to adapt their processes and systems to the requirements of the 6th edition.
