The Office of Citizenship and Migration Affairs shall issue data included in the Register about prohibition or approval to use an individual’s body, tissues and organs after decease, a written request to medical, educational or scientific establishments, which regulatory enactments provide the right to perform removal of tissues and organs of an alive or deceased human, as well as to use the same.
