What is KST?
The Czech Transplantations Coordinating Center (KST) is an organizational unit of the state, established by the Czech Ministry of Health on the basis of the Transplantation Act (No. 285/2002 Coll., as amended). KST works within direct jurisdiction of the Ministry in the field of arrangement and intermediation of transplantations, being assigned particularly several basic tasks.
KST has got international certificates ISO 9001 and ISO 27001
Transplantations Coordinating Center (KST) has been substantially focussed on quality from the very beginning of its existence. Having met the requirements of the international standard ISO 9001 KST gained an international certificate of quality management in 2006, and the certification has been regularly reconfirmed every year. With regards to the fact that the main activity of KST is based on work with personal data of patients, donors and recipients of transplanted organs, the Director of KST has decided in favor of strengthened safety of data and their protection in accordance with requirements of ISO 27001 international standard. Gaining these two prestigious international certificates KST has manifested not only the meeting of the highest demands of quality and data protection in its work but also its capability to assist in application of these quality systems in other medical facilities.
