What happens if I don’t fill anything in?

The new Donor Act is into effect since 1 July 2020. If you don’t make a choice after receiving a letter: The register will state next to your name: ‘No objections to organ donation’.
In the event of your death, your family will then hear that you have no objection to donating organs and tissues. This means that your organs could be given to a patient after your death. The only way that it will be impossible for this to happen is if your family knows for certain that you did not want to be a donor and can show it.
