This document specifies process and quality requirements for the biobanking of mammalian (including human) cell lines. It describes requirements for the fundamental procedures of the biobank handling cell lines, such as establishment, reception, identification, propagation, preservation, storage, quality control, and distribution of cell lines. This document can be used by organizations performing biobanking activities with mammalian cell lines used for research and development, biobank users, organizations and schemes using peer-assessment and accreditation bodies. This document does not apply to biological material intended for therapeutic use. NOTE International, national or regional regulations or requirements can also apply to specific topics covered in this document.

This document specifies the validation and verification requirements applicable to a biobank to be able to demonstrate that it operates its processing of biological materials with validated and/or verified methods that are fit for purpose. This document is intended for use in the implementation and validation of processing methods for biological materials. This document covers method validation and verification for the production of all biological materials. This document does not apply to biological material intended for food/feed production, laboratories undertaking food/feed analysis, and/or therapeutic use. Reference material production is not covered in this document. For the production requirements for reference materials, see ISO 17034.

This document provides guidance to biobanks on how to implement the quality management, management, and technical requirements of ISO 20387. It expands on aspects of ISO 20387 and provides examples for illustration purposes. The aim of this document is to assist biobanks to address competency of personnel and appropriate quality of biological material and data collections. This document is equally applicable to newly established and existing biobanks. This document is applicable to all organizations performing biobanking, including biobanking of biological material from multicellular organisms (e.g., human, animal, fungus and plant) and microorganisms for research and development. This document does not apply to biological material intended for feed/food production, laboratories undertaking analysis for food/feed production and/or therapeutic use.

This document specifies general requirements for the competence, impartiality and consistent operation of biobanks including quality control requirements to ensure biological material and data collections of appropriate quality. This document is applicable to all organizations performing biobanking, including biobanking of biological material from multicellular organisms (e.g. human, animal, fungus and plant) and microorganisms for research and development. Biobank users, regulatory authorities, organizations and schemes using peer-assessment, accreditation bodies, and others can also use this document in confirming or recognizing the competence of biobanks. This document does not apply to biological material intended for food/feed production, laboratories undertaking analysis for food/feed production, and/or therapeutic use. NOTE 1 International, national or regional regulations or requirements can also apply to specific topics covered in this document. NOTE 2 For entities handling human materials procured and used for diagnostic and treatment purposes ISO 15189 and other clinical standards are intended to apply first and foremost.
