HMBANA offers publications that contribute to milk banking operations. These are used by member milk banks, client hospitals, public health institutions, and milk banking institutions globally.

These publications form the backbone of the accreditation process, which is key to ensuring an ethically sourced, equitably distributed, and clinically sound supply of pasteurized donor human milk. When a nonprofit milk bank is a member of HMBANA, they are guided by the standards and ethics set forth in these publications.
