Provisional Common Frameworks on Blood Safety and Quality and on Organs, Tissues and Cells

Closed 17 Jan 2022

Opened 21 Dec 2021


The Health, Social Care and Sport Committee would like to invite you to respond to its call for views on the provisional Common Framework on Blood Safety and Quality and the provisional Common Framework on Organs, Tissues and Cells (apart from embryos and gametes).   

These provisional Common Frameworks have been developed following the UK’s exit from the European Union. The explanatory cover note accompanying these provisional Common Frameworks describes the purpose of both as being “to maintain a compatible minimum set of safety and quality standards between the UK Government, Scottish Government, Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive to make it easier for blood components, organs and non-reproductive tissues and cells to continue to be shared across the UK.”  

The Committee will use responses to this call for evidence to help inform its scrutiny of these two provisional Common Frameworks in the course of January / February 2022.
