Human blood is covered under the definition of ?Drug? under Sec. 3(b) of Drugs & Cosmetics Act. Therefore, blood banks
and blood transfusion service are regulated under the Drugs & Cosmetics Act and rules thereunder. In order to improve
the standards of Blood and its components, the Government of India has formulated a comprehensive legislation to ensure
better quality control system on collection, storage, testing and distribution of blood and its components. Part X B of Drugs
& Cosmetics Rules prescribes the requirements for the collection, storage, processing and distribution of whole human blood,
human blood components by blood banks and manufacture of blood products. PART XII B to the Schedule F of Drugs &
Cosmetics Rules defines the requirements for the functioning and operation of a blood bank and/or for preparation of blood
components, whereas PART XII C prescribes the requirements for manufacture of blood products. In 2002, Government of India
published the National Blood Policy. The objective of the policy is to provide safe, adequate quantity of blood, blood components
and products. The main aim of the policy is to procure non remunerated regular blood donors by the blood banks. The policy
also addresses various issues with regard to technical personnel, research and development and to eliminate profiteering by the
blood banks by selling blood. This presentation discusses various ethical and legal aspects involved in the supply of blood and
blood products in India.
