NOTA (the National Organ Transplant Act)

  • Passed in 1984
  • NOTA specifically states “it shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human organ for valuable consideration for use in human transplantation if the transfer affects interstate commerce.” The penalty of breaking this law is a fine of $50,000 or up to five years in prison, or both.
  • While NOTA prohibits donors from profiting from donation, it is OK for their expenses (travel, lost wages) to be reimbursed
