What happens if Cordlife ceases operations?

The continuation of storage of your child's umbilical cord blood stem cells is of utmost importance to us. In the unlikely event that Cordlife ceases its operations, Cordlife may assign its rights under the Agreement to another provider of cord blood banking storage facilities as long as that provider meets the necessary standards at the relevant time for licensing with the Ministry of Health (MOH), Singapore or of a comparable standard outside of Singapore.
