Founded in 1996, FACT establishes standards for high quality medical and laboratory practice in cellular therapies. FACT is a non-profit corporation co-founded by the International Society for Cell and Gene Therapy (ISCT) and the American Society for Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (ASTCT) for the purposes of voluntary inspection and accreditation in the field of cellular therapy.

FACT Standards are evidence-based requirements set by world-renowned experts vested in the improvement and progress of cellular therapy. Standards for hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation, immune effector cellular therapy, cord blood banking, and other cellular therapies
are developed by committees of clinicians, scientists, pharmacists, technologists, and quality experts. With unparalleled depth and breadth, the Standards trace the entire life of a cell product from donor selection to collection, processing, storage, release, and administration to a patient.

The voluntary FACT accreditation program is founded upon a network of peers helping each other improve cellular therapy practices. Rigorous and comprehensive inspections are balanced with a collegial approach. Inspectors are volunteers who are international experts in their field with current and practical knowledge of the intent of the requirements. Multiple levels of review ensure accreditation is awarded consistently and objectively. Organizations that achieve FACT accreditation have implemented high-quality practices that result in cell products and patient care that are sought by physicians and patients.
