Provisional organs, tissues and cells (apart from embryos and gametes) common framework

The Health and Social Care Committee is considering the provisional common framework on organs, tissues and cells (apart from embryos and gametes).

 

The provisional organs, tissues and cells (apart from embryos and gametes) common framework

 

The provisional common framework on organs, tissues and cells (apart from embryos and gametes) was published on 2 December 2021. It sets out how the UK Government and devolved governments will work together in relation to safety and quality standards for organs and non-reproductive tissues and cells outside the EU.

On 17 December 2021, the Health and Social Care Committee wrote to the Minister for Health and Social Services to seek further information about the framework.

 

After consideration of the response received from the Minister for Health and Social Services, the Health and Social Care Committee wrote to the Minister on 21 March 2022 making a number of recommendations. A holding response from the Minister was received on 9 May 2022. The Committee wrote back to the Minister on 14 June 2022.
