On July 1, 2020, a new Donorregister will be introduced that regulates that everyone from the age of 18 in the Netherlands will be registered in the Donorregister.

You can make, record and change your choice about organ donation yourself. The choices are: yes, no, my partner or family decides whether a person I have chosen decides.

If you have not yet made a choice, you will be registered with 'no objection to organ donation' ('geen bezwaar tegen orgaandonatie'). You can also change this registration. If you are already registered, your choice remains valid. Even after the introduction of the new Donorregister.
