Transplant Centers cooperating with DKMS Registry are evaluated according to WMDA TC evaluation criteria before any donor can be requested. The TCs are asked to provide specific details which are reviewed and eventually approved by the DKMS Review Board. In case two reviewers come to different conclusions about the acceptability of the TC, the case is reviewed and decided by the Chief Medical Director of DKMS.
A reassessment of the evaluation takes place every three years.
Transplant Centers in the rest of the world also need to fulfill WMDA TC evaluation criteria.
If the requesting registry is neither WMDA qualified nor confirms in written form that affiliated TCs are evaluated according to WMDA criteria, DKMS Registry will seek for information about the requesting Transplant Center and ask the Transplant Center to fill in the TC evaluation form (in accordance with WMDA criteria). No request can be initiated before the DKMS Review Board approved the Transplant Center.
