Compliance Updates 2017

Issue date: 
26 July 2017

All establishments licensed under the Human Tissue Act 2004 and the Quality and Safety of Organs Intended for Transplantation Regulations 2012 must review their licensing records and complete a compliance update.

The information collected will be used to:

  • maintain our regulatory oversight
  • guide our regulatory approach, and
  • inform our risk profiling and the scheduling of site visits. 

We have issued Directions and full instructions for how to complete and submit the compliance updates. These have been sent by email to the Designated Individual and Licence Holder, or named contact, for each licence.

You will be able to complete and submit your compliance updates via our online portal from 31 August – 2 October 2017. We plan to publish the questions on our website a couple of weeks before submissions open.

To help you prepare, we recommend that you read the guidance document on submitting Compliance Updates using the HTA Portal. You should also check that you have access to the HTA Portal.

If you have any questions now, or during the submission period, please contact
