Australian Organ Donor Register


The Australian Organ Donor Register (the Donor Register) is the only national register for people to record their decision about becoming an organ and tissue donor for transplantation after death. Registering is voluntary and people have complete choice over which organs and tissues they wish to donate. If a person does not want to become an organ and tissue donor, they can register their decision not to donate on the Donor Register.

Registering your consent on the Donor Register is a good way to record your decision about how you wish your organs and tissues to be treated after your death. Please note that your next of kin will always be asked to confirm your donation decision, and agree to donation before it can proceed.

We ask your permission to link your donor registration to your Medicare record because it will help keep your details up to date.

By registering your organ and tissue donation decision, you consent to Authorised Medical Personnel (AMP) accessing your donor registration for purposes related to organ donation.

To find out what you need to know before registering, visit the department's website. If you would like to discover more about organ and tissue donation, visit
