An organ for a life

Organ donation

Removal authorisation

When someone dies the doctor are allowed to remove organs if this person had been registered either in the register of Births, Marriages and Deaths or in the register of foreigners for at least 6 months or if no clear opposition has been made either by the death person or their heirs.
If the person when alive had not planned anything, the doctor will turn to the close relatives, asking them to make a decision. Making a decision when one has lost one's landmarks can by really unsettling. This is why it may be better to let your family know of your decision to avoid them to make it on your behalf.
