The AATB is dedicated to ensuring that human tissues intended for transplantation are safe and free of infectious disease, of uniform high quality, and available in quantities sufficient to meet national needs. To fulfill that mission, since 1984, the AATB has published the only authoritative industry standards for tissue banks, the AATB’s Standards for Tissue Banking. Beginning in 1986, the AAT...B initiated a mandatory Accreditation Program for its institutional members to ensure that tissue-banking activities are performed in a professional manner in compliance with these Standards. In 1988, the Association began a certification program for individuals working in tissue banking.
