S135 - Improve Anatomical Gift Donation Process. (SL 2021-32)
Session Year 2021
Overview: S.L. 2021-32 amends the anatomical gifts process (organ, eye, and tissue donation) to clarify that a statement or symbol indicating the individual has made an anatomical gift remains on the donor's drivers license or identification card until the donor revokes consent by requesting removal in a manner prescribed by the Division of Motor Vehicles. The act also provides that an individual who became a donor in another state and applies for a drivers license or identification card in North Carolina is required to authorize that a statement or symbol be imprinted on the donor's license or card issued in this State in order for the anatomical gift to be valid.
The act became effective October 1, 2021.
