The Netherlands will register every citizen aged 18 and over as a potential organ donor, unless they explicitly choose to opt out.
Under the new law, every Dutch adult who has not yet registered as an organ donor will receive two letters asking them to indicate whether or not they want to become donors. If they don't respond after the second mail they will automatically be added to the list, but are free to amend their status at any time.
Critics of the bill complained that it put too much authority in the hands of the government over what happens to a citizen after their death.
As part of the changes, authorities must consult with the deceased's relatives. The family will also have the final say over whether the procedure goes ahead, according to Dijkstra.
Organ donor shortages have long been a problem in the Netherlands, which is still far better than rest of the world.
“The purpose is to make that number decline”.
The Netherlands follows the likes of Spain, which has had its own opt-out organ donor system since 1979, and France, which introduced similar legislation in January 2017.
