Ohio Donor Registry
The Ohio Donor Registry is managed by the state of Ohio through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The state’s four organ procurement organizations are the only groups with access to the registry. The registry is used to verify the donation wishes of any individual who passes away in the state. Simply put, the registry ensures that people’s lives are saved through donation!
Ohioans register for the Ohio Donor Registry using first-person consent. This means your decision to become a registered organ, eye and tissue donor is legally binding and cannot be overridden by anyone should you become a candidate for donation. In other words, your desire to save the lives of others through organ, eye and tissue donation is legally protected by the state of Ohio.
