Human Tissue Products

Products that contain human tissue may be impacted by the Human Tissue Act 2008. Should a product contain human tissue cells the potential sponsor should ensure that the product is supplied in compliance with this Act.

It is the responsibility of the sponsor of the product to ensure that its product complies with the Human Tissue Act. The Human Tissue Act is administered by the Ministry of Health (not Medsafe). Sponsors are recommended to contact the Ministry of Health to determine whether their product(s) are impacted by the Human Tissue Act.
