Human Tissue Act 

Welcome the UCL Human Tissue Act web pages

The aim of this site is to provide an overview of the Human Tissue Act (2004), its far reaching implications, the implementation of the Act’s requirements at UCL and the steps taken by UCL to ensure compliance with the Act.

UCL individuals whose activities ("Scheduled Purposes") are encompassed by the Act must ensure that they meet the applicable requirements set out in the Act, the HTA's licensing arrangements and Codes of Practice.
