The Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment explores the costs and benefits associated with the move to a soft opt out system of organ and tissue donation as provided for by the Human Tissue (Authorisation) (Scotland) Bill.

Executive Summary

The Human Tissue (Authorisation) (Scotland) Bill provides for a soft opt out system of organ and tissue donation. The Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment provides an assessment of the potential impacts, costs and benefits of moving to a soft opt out system. Whilst moving to an opt out system of organ and tissue donation alone will not lead to an increase in deceased donor numbers, estimates are provided of the potential impact that could be associated with such a move and the related costs.
