Human Tissue Authority

The regulator for human tissue and organs

Licence fees and payments: 2016/2017

The HTA has announced that there will be no increase in the 2016/17 annual licence fee for organisations in the post-mortem, research, public display, organ donation and transplantation and anatomy sectors. There will be a small increase in fees for those organisations with a human application licence (around 4%, an average of £300), to reflect the level of regulatory activities within this sector. 

HTA fees are set to recover the cost of regulatory activity in each sector.  The HTA strives to be as efficient as possible, and pass on these efficiencies to our licensed establishment. The HTA will make a further 3% in financial savings in 2016/17, partly through a more effective use of office space. These savings will enable the HTA to hold fees for 16/17 in all but one sector, even though the total number of organisations licensed by the HTA has decreased.
