WMDA Standards

The WMDA Standards cover all aspects of blood stem cell registry operations:

  • processing incoming requests for access to donors/cord blood units arriving from organisations in other countries;
  • facilitating outgoing requests for international donors/cord blood units for patients in the country where the registry resides;
  • coordinating the activities of donor, collection and transplant centres and cord blood banks within a country.

Organisations (registries) demonstrate their commitment to comply with WMDA Standards through the WMDA accreditation process.

WMDA security standards are published in chapter 5 of the WMDA Standards.
