AABB Circular of Information

For a hardcopy of the Circular of Information, please reach out to ClientServices@mvrbc.org.


The Circular of Information for the Use of Human Blood and Blood Components provides an extensive review of licensed and some unlicensed blood and blood components, their indications for use, special precautions, instructions for administration, and adverse effects of transfusion. It also includes a broad and up-to-date list of references. The Circular is an important part of the labeling for a blood component, similar to the package insert provided for a drug. The Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, requires that it be available for distribution with blood and blood components intended for transfusion and that it provide adequate directions for use. The information contained in the Circular is intended to be widely available and easily accessed by health care providers as it is recognized by the FDA as an extension of the blood component label.
