Human Tissue Act
New legislation on human organs and tissue

Update, March 2007

The Human Tissue Act (2004) came fully into force on 1st September 2006 with the implementation of licensing.

The Human Tissue Authority (HTA) was established under the HT Act as the regulatory body responsible for all matters concerning the removal, retention, use and disposal of human biological material (referred to in the Act as “relevant material”) for scheduled purposes set out in the HT Act. The HT Act stipulates that certain activities can only be carried out under the authority of a licence granted by the HTA.
