Based in the United Kingdom, ESACT-UK is a Society which promotes the communication of knowledge and experience between scientists and engineers whose work has a direct or indirect bearing on cell culture biotechnology and the products derived from it.

A particular emphasis is to ensure both the inclusion, and the active participation, of less experienced scientists in industry or academic institutions.

ESACT-UK actively encourages interactions between academia, governmental and policy making agencies, and the manufacturing and service industries. One product of such interactions, which involved members of ESACT-UK, is the international Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP) Guidance Document published in July 2005.
