To accomplish this, it is essential to have a high level quality management system for the entire process from blood donation to transfusion.

Blood center's blood management tasks should establish appropriate quality management systems to ensure the safe supply of blood, as well as the basic resources of personnel, facilities and equipment in accordance with laws and regulations governed by the Ministry of Health and Welfare in Korea. The purpose of this review is to examine the contents and processes for quality control of clinical chemistry tests in Korean blood centers.
