Dear participants, Quality management and inspection of blood establishments are a key stone in achieving best practice and guaranteeing the safety of blood and blood components for transfusion of patients. The European Blood Inspection System (EuBIS), initiated under the Public Health Programme of the European Commission, Directorate General SANCO, has developed a manual and training guide containing standards and guidelines for quality management and the inspection of blood establishments. Based on the EuBIS manual and guide the EuBIS Academy has organised training seminars and courses in order to promote knowledge in the area of quality and safety of blood and blood components throughout Europe and worldwide.

The seminars will comprise lectures and group work in a face-to-face fashion based on cases covering several aspects of GP and GMP such as: GP Guidelines, Inspection/Audit, Validation, Change Control, Corrective actions, Risk Assessment. Previous participation in a EuBIS/Catie course is beneficial but not a prerequisite. Participants are offered an examination (optional) with a certificate of successful participation by EuBIS Academy / CNS.

Training course participants: • Qualified as inspectors by a Competent Authority • Individuals working in a blood establishment in the area of quality management. Trainees registered for this course are from : Algeria Cyprus Germany Italy Kuweit Lebanon Luxembourg Malta Portugal Saudi Arabia Spain

On behalf of all EuBIS Project participants, Collaborating partners and the Academy trainers, we are happy to welcome you at CNS in Rome and hope that we will have an exciting training including fruitful discussions and extensive exchange of ideas.
