Bulletin 17-12​

November 1, 2017​

The American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) is pleased to announce the release of the 2nd Edition of the Standards for Non-Transplant Anatomical Donation Organizations. The Board of Governors acted on a recommendation from the Standards Committee and the Ad-Hoc NADO committee to approve the 2nd Edition Standards.

The 2nd Edition of the AATB Standards for Non-transplant Anatomical Donation Organizations is now available for purchase. For the first time ever, these standards will be published online only; a paper copy will not be available for purchase.

Due to the depth and breadth of changes to the NT-Standards, AATB is taking the step of allowing nearly twice the usual period of time to come into compliance with new requirements. The effective date for compliance to the 2nd Edition is May 1, 2018.

To assist members with recognizing updates, an overview has been created and can be found here.
