We have revised our guidance on the regulation of bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) donations where the donor is an adult lacking capacity or child without competence to consent.
Under the Human Tissue Act 2004, any potential donation of bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) from adults who lack capacity to consent and children who lack competence to consent, must be assessed by an Accredited Assessor (AA) and a report submitted to the HTA for decision.
The HTA is responsible for assessing all donations of bone marrow or PBSC (these are cells found in the bloodstream which are able to develop into all of the different cell types in blood) from adults who lack capacity to consent and children who lack competence to consent.
The Human Tissue Act 2004 (HT Act) provides the legal framework for bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
