How is cord blood regulated in NZ

Cord blood collection and storage is regulated in New Zealand by the Ministry of Health.

CordBank holds a Class G license from the Ministry of Health to manufacture medicine, recognising that the cord blood stem cells parents are saving today re being stored for medical use in the future.

CordBank is audited annually by Medsafe, the Ministry’s regulatory arm under cGMP (Good Manufacturing Practise), which is the most stringent level of quality applied to cord blood facilities globally.
