Blood and marrow transplantation is a highly complex process requiring a coordinated team from many disciplines all contributing to the treatment and outcome of the transplant recipient. The focus of this highly specialized community has been to improve outcomes and widen the field of candidates for this often life-saving but high-risk procedure.

The chapter will examine the evolution of the most common citations during inspections for accreditation under the FACT-JACIE Hematopoietic Cellular Therapy Standards, currently in version 6.1 as of this writing. For each area of citations, methods to integrate into the collection of hematopoietic progenitor cell (HPC) products to address and avoid these citations as well as to provide high-quality cells to patients will be discussed. The trends discussed in this chapter reflect inspections performed by the Foundation for Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT).
