In 2004, the Council and the European Parliament adopted Directive 2004/23/EC on the quality and safety of human tissues and cells. Member States must bring into force the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive, as well as the implementing measures set out in the Commission Directives.

The Commission will convene the Competent Authorities for Tissues and Cells on 13-14 May 2019 in order to exchange views and discuss the implementation of the Directives.

Due to space limitations, participation will be limited to a maximum of two persons per country. I would be grateful if you inform the Commission by introducing the name(s) of your national representative(s) in AGM not later than 16 April 2019.

Please note that the Commission will reimburse only one participant per country. As this reimbursement will be introduced in AGM, participants entitled for reimbursement will be informed to enter their bank account details and start the online reimbursement procedure.
Participants should ensure to provide the relevant supporting document such as travel details, travel expenses or add supporting documents (justification expenses/tickets/bills etc…).
