At the first of the New Year, every citizen of France became an organ and tissue donor. In order to opt out of this mandate, French citizens must add their name to the National Rejection Register (NRR).

According to Donor Organes , the national Agence de la Biomedicine a France: “In the name of national solidarity, the principle of presumed consent was chosen. The law says that we are all donors of organs and tissues, unless we have expressed our refusal.”

The system is set up so that at the time of death, French doctors will check with the family of the deceased and the NRR to make sure they are not listed to opt out of the program and make sure it was the wishes of the deceased to have their organs and tissue donated to science.

To date, more than 150,000 French citizens have signed up to be on the NRR list which can be done online through their website.

Donor Organes requires those opting out to sign a document that their next of kin or chosen relative must convey the refusal to the agency and also fill out a written declaration of non-consent which will be given to physicians.

Back in November of 2016, the agency released a film called Deja-vu 2 in the hopes of encouraging 15 to 25 year olds to sign up to be organ donors.
