Codes of Practice

UK Codes of Practice

The Steering Committee for the UK Stem Cell Bank and for the Use of Stem Cell Lines have produced two codes of practice. This non-statutory committee reports annually to the MRC and briefs UK government ministers on request. The codes are closely modelled on the UK 2001 Department of Health Code of Practice for Public Sector Tissue Banks, and other relevant UK and European guidance and legislation. They will be reviewed regularly and amended to accommodate new scientific developments, and new or amended UK regulations and legislation.

To ensure that the Codes of Practice are clear and relevant for everyone who will use them, the Steering Committee’s policy is to make drafts available for public consultation before final publication.
