Founded on 1 January 2000 and placed under the authority of the Ministry of Health, the French Blood Establishment (EPS) is the sole public provider of national blood transfusion services in France. ISO 9001: 2008 certified and formed by seventeen regional establishments, the EFS manages the activities of collection, preparation, testing and distribution of labile blood products. Its role in maintaining the country's self-sufficiency in labile blood products, whilst meeting the highest quality and safety standards, makes it a major contributor to public health in France.
Three major features set French transfusion medicine apart from other international models:
Through the EFS, the French State is therefore responsible for self-sufficiency, health safety and the efficient management of the rare and precious commodity that is human blood. The French model is one of the few to provide both "ethical blood donation" and internationally recognized efficiency.
