With immediate effect, for transplants using an exempted regulated product, registered medical practitioners are not required to supply to the Human Organ Transplant Board (“HOTB”) the information as specified in the prescribed Form 2 of the Human Organ Transplant Regulation (Cap. 465A) (“the Regulation”). In addition, the Department of Health (“DH”) will no longer require registered medical practitioners and registered dentists to submit the DH Return Form on transplant of the exempted regulated product to the DH.
The changes in the requirements to supply information about transplant operations apply only to regulated products that are exempted from the Ordinance. For other transplant operations, the requirements under section 6 of the Human Organ Transplant Ordinance (Cap. 465) for provision of information to the HOTB by medical practitioners, as specified in the Schedule of the Regulation should be observed.
