The Human Tissue Bill became the Human Tissue Act 2004, establishing the Human Tissue Authority (HTA). The HTA licenses and inspects organisations that store and use human tissue for purposes such as research, patient treatment, post-mortem examination, teaching and public exhibitions. It also gives approval for organ and bone marrow donations from living people and maintains a Code of Practice which includes requirements for obtaining consent for organ donation after death.
