The Human Tissue Authority
What registration with the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) means :
The HTA was set up to regulate the removal, storage, use and disposal of human bodies, organs and tissue for a number of scheduled purposes – such as research, transplantation, and education and training – set out in the Human Tissue Act 2004.
The HTA has issued around 500 licenses to pathology services, anatomy schools and establishments storing tissue for research and sites displaying human tissue; such as museums.
CellPath has been granted a license solely for the storage of the body of a deceased person, or relevant material which has come from a human body. This means that we have satisfied the HTA that we are a suitable and responsible organisation, with the necessary procedures and qualified people to fulfill the conditions of the license.
As a license holder we are subject to a rigororous inspection programme based on compliance, evaluation and site visits – both notified and unannounced.
As a licensed establishment you can have full confidence in the fact that CellNass is subject to detailed inspection by the HTA and guarantee a fully compliant environment for the safe and secure storage of human tissue – to the same standard you expect on your own premises.
