Blood Establishment Registration - Latest System Changes
horizonal rule

The Electronic Blood Establishment Registration (eBER) web site is in use and is being upgraded continuously. CBER reviews the site periodically to ensure reliable access for data entry and retrieval of saved data. To facilitate user understanding of recent changes, the upgrades made to the system are outlined below. The system consists of the eBER submission module to enter Blood Establishment and Product Listing data required for submission and the eBER Public Query which is used to review non-confidential blood establishment registration information for active, inactive, and pre-registered firms.
