Code of Conduct for Responsible Use of Human Tissue

The Federation of Dutch Medical Scientific Societies (Federa) has drawn up the Code of Conduct for Responsible Use of Human Tissue. This is a handbook for the responsible processing of human tissue on behalf of scientific research. The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS) is currently preparing a Control over Body Materials Act [Wet zeggenschap lichaamsmateriaal] (Wzl) which will serve in the future as a specific legal framework for the (further) use of body tissue for medical scientific research.
