The decision to decommission the New South Wales register means that local residents will now register for organ donation through the Australian Organ Donor Register.
Minister for human services, senator Kim Carr welcomed the decision, where some have said that it will remove the barrier for organ donation.
"This move by NSW government towards a single national register for organ and tissue donation will help increase organ donation in NSW, and could ultimately save lives," Ms King said (August 7).
?"It aligns with the Australian government?'s National Reform Agenda to increase organ and tissue donation for transplantation."
Mr Carr says the single national register helps people to make a clear decision about donating.
"The Australian Organ Donor Register – administered by the Department of Human Services – gives people access to the information they need to make a decision about donation," he said.
People who have a family member or friend in need of organ donation may also welcome the decision, that may be expected to boost organ donation.
