The only way to register your decision about organ or tissue donation is by registering your decision on this website. You can always change your decision afterwards by registering your choice again. Registering your decision in the Donorregister will clarify your wishes about donating your organs and tissues after you die for all those involved. It will ensure that your next of kin will not be asked difficult questions about your wishes.
Register your choice here (only available in Dutch). If your decision has already been registered you will be able to check or change your registration online. Other details, such as your name or address cannot be changed. You can use DigiD to log in.

The personal details you provide will be compared with the details registered with your local municipal authorities. Information such as your name and address is recorded in the Municipal Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen or BRP). If you notify the local municipal authorities of a change of name and/or address, the Donorregister will be notified automatically. You do not have to notify the register yourself.
Information regarding one's personal decision is only provided in writing and only to the person concerned. Third parties will never be provided with this kind of information. However, there is one exception. When a patient dies, the doctor is authorized to view the patient’s wishes by consulting the Donorregister. The database can be consulted by doctors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They must follow a prescribed procedure.
