Trade in organ transplantation

Motion on trade in organ transplant

The Standing Committee of Doctors of the EC (CP), meeting in Madrid on 2­5 October 1991, considered the topic of trade in organ transplantation and its ethical implications.

The CP notes with satisfaction the technical progress made in the field of organ transplant and its benefits for the patients.

However, The CP wishes to express its great concern about the tendency seen for commercial exploitation of this benefit via a trade in human organs.

The CP unanimously agrees that such commerce in human organs is ethically indefensible and that the donation of organs may only be done anonymously (with certain exceptions) and without any commercial aspects for donor, recipient or their relatives.

Furthermore, the CP unanimously agrees that no prisoner or detainee shall be subjected to organ removal under duress or promise of reduction of sentence or other advantages. Nor should the organs of persons who have been executed be used for the purpose of transplant due, namely, to the extreme difficulty of verifying the presence of informed consent in such cases.
