Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy

In December 1994, the International Society for Cellular Therapy and the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation merged their standards into a single document covering all aspects of hematopoietic cell therapy (collection, processing and transplantation).  The two societies established the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) in order to develop a voluntary practice of cellular therapy through its peer-developed standards and voluntary inspection and accreditation program.

The Joint Commission (TJC) logo

The Joint Commission

In 1951, the American College of Physicians, the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association and the Canadian Medical Association joined with the American College of Surgeons to create the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAH) as an independent, nonprofit organization whose primary purpose was to provide voluntary accreditation. In January 1953, JCAH began offering accreditation to hospitals. Accreditation processes were subsequently developed for other healthcare organizations and programs, and the name was changed in 1987 to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). In 2007, the organization shortened its name to The Joint Commission (TJC).
