NMDP Standards

The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP), which operates Be The Match® Registry, has basic guidelines for programs working through the NMDP to facilitate hematopoietic cell transplants.

25th Edition NMDP Standard

The National Marrow Donor Program® / Be The Match® 25th Edition Standards (effective January 30, 2023), replaces the 24th Edition Standards, (effective January 1, 2018).  The new 25th edition of standards are part of NMDP’s effort to streamline the Standards and for centers to refer to AABB and FACT Accreditation as participation requirements. The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) Board of Directors has approved the 25th Edition of NMDP Standards.  Please see the links below.

As always, questions or comments related to content of the 25th Edition may be submitted at any time to standards@nmdp.org.  Please include the justification for any proposed changes.
