The Human Tissue Act 2004 (HT Act) covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The HT Act established the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) to regulate activities concerning the removal, storage, use and disposal of human tissue. This code of practice gives practical guidance to professionals carrying out activities which lie within the HTA's remit. They may also be of interest to members of the public. The code of practice is an updated version of the first edition of this publication, incorporating new material and revisions that reflect the HTA's experience of regulation. The code has been made more relevant to the sectors the HTA regulate by including case studies and examples; and has been restructured in a way that makes it more user-friendly. This code outlines the HTA's role in approving the donation of allogeneic bone barrow and peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) - primarily those involving donation by children not competent to give consent and adults lacking capacity. It also provides guidance on the process that must be followed before donation. The HTA has published seven other new editions of the codes of practice, details of which can be found below. The codes complement each other and should be read alongside other relevant advice and guidance. This code on Consent replaces the previous code of practice. It has been approved by the Secretary of State following consultation with the Welsh Assembly Government and the Northern Ireland department, and it has received Parliamentary approval. This title includes contents such as: Statutory framework - The Human Tissue Act 2004, Requirements for court approval, Scottish legislation, The Human Tissue (Quality and Safety for Human Application), and Regulations 2007; HTA approval process; Consent; Informing the donor; Donations by children; Donations by adults; Appendix A: Guidance on requirements for court approval; and, Glossary.
