22.4: Safety requirements

Each HPC-processing facility must be operated in a manner to minimise risks to the health and safety of employees, donors and recipients. Suitable facilities and equipment must be available to maintain safe operations.

There must be procedures for microbiological, chemical and radiation safety, as appropriate, and a system for monitoring training and compliance.

HPC and TC collections must be handled and discarded with precautions that recognise the potential for exposure to infectious agents.
