Register as a donor

You can register as a donor online at donorregister.nl (in Dutch). Or you can request a donor form. You can request the form by phone (in Dutch) as well. In addition, the form is available from:

  • your family doctor
  • pharmacies
  • the Civil Affairs (Burgerzaken) counter at your municipality

Have you not filled in a choice? Then you will be registered as 'geen bezwaar tegen orgaandonatie' ('no objection to organ donation'). This means that your organs can be donated to a patient after your death.

Change your registration

You can always change your registration in the donor register. Even if you are registered as 'geen bezwaar tegen orgaandonatie'. You can change your registration by logging in with your DigiD on the donorregister.nl website (in Dutch) at any time. Or you can fill in a new donor form.
