About AATB's Accreditation Program
To help ensure that tissue banking activities are performed in a professional manner consistent with the AATB’s Standards, the Association initiated an Accreditation Program for tissue banks in 1986. AATB accreditation is based on the Standards and policies developed by the Association. Institutional members receive reduced member rates for AATB meetings and workshops, and publications.
