The National Transplantation Registry (NTR) keeps record of those people who declare their objection against removal of their organs and tissues after death, and declare that their personal data can be put into the national electronic database. (Since the Public Act on Data Protection came into force, those who want to send a statement of objection also have to send a written consent on getting into the electronic database.)
Only those healthcare workers can get any personal data from the National Transplantation Registry who were designated for this task by the manager of their hospital, and only if every legal provisions are met.
The NTR was launched on 1 April, 1999 in the Office of the Chief Medical Officer, and started working continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On 20 February, 2004 the NTR was placed into the Jozsef Fodor National Center of Public Health, and within this into the Main Department of Information in the National Institute of Chemical Safety. The Jozsef Fodor National Center of Public Health ceased in 2007, but the National Transplantation Registry continues working in the National Institute of Chemical Safety, in one of its department called Health Toxicological Information Service. Thus it still can be called 24 hours a day.
When a health care institute needs information, their designated staff can call the NTR on a private phone number. All of the phone calls that come to this extension are recorded.
