Changes to the ISBT 128 Standard are required as new products are developed. Changes are also frequently needed when the first facility within a country adopts the Standard. Such changes are carefully managed through a transparent proposal process. Any user can suggest changes. Suggestions are captured in formal proposals which are reviewed by the Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) with the appropriate expertise. If approved by the TAGs, the proposals are reviewed by the Standards Committee and ICCBBA staff for consistency with the ISBT 128 Standard and for backward compatibility. Once final approval is obtained, changes are published in appropriate documents and made available to ISBT 128 users.
This section houses both active and archived proposals for changes to the ISBT 128 Standard.
