CAN/CSA-Z902-15 - Blood and blood components
The third edition of CSA Z902 provides management requirements for facilities that collect, process, store, and use human blood components for transfusion. It helps to protect recipients of blood and blood components as well as personnel and others who are exposed to blood and blood components by addressing safety, efficacy and quality issues.
First published in 2004, this management standard applies to any organization that collects, processes, stores, or uses human blood components for transfusion and is a valuable tool to assist in the preparation of detailed specifications and operating procedures. Organizations that manage blood products but not blood components (e.g., a hospital pharmacy), are encouraged to review the relevant requirements for blood products and incorporate them as appropriate into their procedures.
