Since the first of July 2020, the new Donor Act has been in effect in the Netherlands.
Everyone aged 18 and older who is a registered resident in a municipality in the Netherlands will automatically be included in the donor registry. In this registry, you can indicate whether you want your organs and tissues to be available to other patients in the case of your death.
You can decide to donate all possible organs and tissues, make a selection, or not donate any organs or tissues at all. If you do not make a choice, you will be registered as having “no objection to organ donation.” If you are already registered, there is no need to take any further action.
