> NF S96-900
NF S96-900 is a French standard that applies to structures that collect, preserve and make available biological resources in accordance with the legislation in force. This norm was developed following an approach consistent with existing documents and in particular, the standard NF EN ISO 9001 and the guidelines of the OECD. It specifies the requirements for a comprehensive quality management system for the collection, transport, storage of biological resources. NF S96-900 not only helps ensure the quality of the samples to users, but also gives patients the assurance that the samples they agreed to donate for research are used in accordance with their will and their privacy.
PS: NF S96-900 will soon be replaced by the ISO 20387 certification (implementation ongoing)
