Registration and Licensing

To support its activities, ICCBBA charges an annual licensing fee for the use of the ISBT 128 Standard. Primarily the annual licensing fee is based on the number of Donation Identification Numbers (DINs) assigned to collections by a facility in the previous year. 

For example, if a facility collected 15,000 whole blood units, ICCBBA would receive US $346.00. (This figure is based off ICCBBA's 2017 Fee Schedule).

ICCBBA expresses its deepest gratitude to all of our participating facilities/vendors, and to our team of volunteers, for their continuing support of the ISBT 128 Standard.
