The new Donor Act will take eff ect from 1 July 2020. From that date onwards, everyone aged 18 and above who is registered as resident in a municipality in the Netherlands will automatically be included in the new Donor Register. In the new Donor Register, you can indicate whether you wish to make your organs and tissues available to patients in the event of your death. This could be your kidney, lungs or skin, for example. Once you have made your choice, your next of kin or partner will know whether or not you wish to be an organ donor. You can register your choice at www.donorregister.nl. If you have already entered your choice, you do not need to take any further action.
