The UK Donation Ethics Committee (UKDEC) is an independent source of advice and guidance on ethical aspects of organ donation and transplantation.
It aims to increase professional and public confidence in the ethical basis for decisions and processes in organ donation.
The UKDEC will consider ethical issues in their broader context in society.
