China’s first set of regulations on human organ transplant, which prohibits organizations and individuals from trading human organs in any form, went into effect on Tuesday.

Any doctor found to be involved in human organ trade will have their practitioner license revoked, according to the regulations issued by the State Council, China’s cabinet.

Officials convicted of trading in human organs will be sacked and kicked out of the government. [Full Text]
