Abstract

This symposium is being held under the auspices of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Mr Daniel Tarschys. The patronage was granted with great pleasure for several reasons. First of all Dutch experts are very active in our Committees and have largely contributed in developing the Council of Europe principles in the blood area, secondly if the Council of Europe is active today in the area of blood transfusion it is due to a sad event, which occurred in 1952 in the Netherlands. Following a flooding many of the blood products given for assistance could not be used due to incompatibilities and differences in labelling.
