NMDP Standards

The National Marrow Donor Program® / Be The Match® 24th Edition Standards and Glossary (effective January 1, 2018), replaces the 23rd Edition Standards, (effective January 1, 2016).

The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) Board of Directors has approved the 24th Edition of NMDP Standards.  Please see the links below. For ease of review a redlined and clean copy of the 24th Edition Standards and a Record of Change are included.

These standards must be implemented by January 1, 2018.  Read this document carefully and review your facility’s procedures and processes and complete updates that may be required for compliance by the effective date of January 1, 2018.  

As always, questions or comments related to content of the 24th Edition may be submitted at any time to standards@nmdp.org.  Please include the justification for any proposed changes.
