Review of the Human Tissue Act
In 2012, a number of amendments relating to tissue donation were made to the Human Tissue Act 1983. A statutory review of the Act is required to determine whether the amendments have been effective in achieving an increase in the rate of tissue donation in the State. A discussion paper has been prepared to canvass issues associated with the review and consult with stakeholders.
Submissions on the issues raised in the discussion paper will be accepted until 3 August 2018.
