Overview

The HTA aims to maintain public confidence by ensuring that human tissue and organs are used safely and ethically and with proper consent. We regulate organisations that remove, store and use human tissue for research, medical treatment, post-mortem examination, teaching and display in public. The HTA also approves organ and bone marrow donations from living people.

The original public bodies reform proposal was to abolish the Human Tissue Authority but following consultation the decision was made not to proceed with abolition. A further independent review of the Human Tissue Authority was undertaken by Justin McCracken in 2013. The McCracken Review was published in July 2013 and the Government has accepted all the recommendations.
