AABB Quality Certificate Program

The AABB Quality Certificate Program is based on the implementation of AABB’s Fundamental Standards for Blood Collection and Transfusion. The Certificate signifies that facilities in limited-resource settings have initiated their quality journey by adhering to AABB standards. Facilities that obtain the Quality Certificate will gain international recognition for their efforts with a two-year certificate issued by AABB.
