Code of practice 2

Donation of solid organs for transplantation


19. The HTA regulates living organ donation in Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government, and the guidance on living organ donation within this code applies to Scotland (see paragraphs 54-57 for specific guidance on Scottish legislation).

20. The guidance on deceased donation does not apply to Scotland, as deceased donation in Scotland is regulated under separate legislation; however paragraph 95 provides details of relevant guidance for Scottish practitioners.

21. Guidance within the code on the licensing requirements of the HT Act (see paragraphs 135-158) is not applicable to Scotland, where separate requirements apply. However the requirements of the Q&S Tissues and Cells Regulations and the Q & S Organs Regulations, apply UK-wide.
