UNOS: Policy Proposals Issued for Public Comment

Policy Proposals

The Organ Procurement and Transplant Network (OPTN) policy development process includes solicitation of public feedback on policy and bylaw proposals. This process is called public comment and it allows the public an opportunity to submit feedback before policies and bylaws are reviewed and considered by the OPTN/UNOS Board of Directors.

Successful organ transplantation depends on the cooperation of many people and organizations, so it is vital to ensure the opinions of all interested parties are heard and addressed. Input from transplant candidates - the people most affected by new or revised policy - is an important part of the public comment process. The OPTN strongly encourages all interested individuals - especially transplant candidates - to express their views on policy proposals by getting involved in the public comment process.

Public Comment Notice

Fourteen new policy proposals are now being offered for public comment. These proposals were developed by OPTN/UNOS committees. When the public comment period ends on December 23, 2011, each sponsoring committee will review the feedback they receive and consider modifications to the original proposal. The OPTN/UNOS Board of Directors may then review and vote on these proposals at its meeting June 25-26, 2012.

We request your input on these proposals by December 23, 2011. View these policy proposals now. http://optn.transplant.hrsa.gov/policiesAndBylaws/publicComment/proposals.asp
