Accreditation Committee

The European Federation for Immunogenetics (EFI) Accreditation Programme provides an internationally recognised accreditation scheme for laboratories providing Histocompatibility & Immunogenetics (H&I) testing services in support of solid organ and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation, blood transfusion, disease diagnosis and drug hypersensitivity reactions.

There are currently approx. 270 laboratories across Europe and beyond accredited by EFI. Through a network of commissioners and inspectors the laboratories are inspected for compliance with the published EFI Standards for Histocompatibility Testing. These are recognised as appropriate technical standards for H&I by the European Cooperation for Accreditation.
