The Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry (ABMDR) is currently the initial contact point for the donors recruited in New Zealand. Registries wishing to request match lists and service requests (typing, requests for workup etc), please contact ABMDR. NZBMDR can be contacted directly for information on how requests are proceeding. All workup and transport issues are communicated directly with the NZBMDR.
These guidelines have been developed by the New Zealand Bone Marrow Donor Registry based on the World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA) standards. The intent of these guidelines is to regulate the operation of the registry and all its associated bodies.
