The Donor Register is where you record whether you choose to donate your organs and tissues after your death. Recording your choice can be done online or by post. It is important for you to make a choice. This way your partner or family will know whether you want to become a donor or not.

Everyone in the Netherlands from the age of 18 who is registered at a Dutch municipality is noted in the Donor Register.

Organ and tissue donation: what does it mean?

Please read all information carefully before making a choice. The Dutch Transplantation Foundation can help you with questions about organ and tissue donation.

For example, if you have questions like “When is donation possible?", "Can I say goodbye after donation?" or "How is determined if someone passed away?", visit the website of the Dutch Transplant Foundation (NTS).
