BEIJING -- China has enforced updated regulations on human organ transplants starting from Aug 24, replacing the previous version introduced in June 2006, said the National Health Commission.

In line with the progress of medical services and increasing demands, the latest regulations extend guidance for transplantation from liver, kidney, heart and lung to pancreas and small intestine, the commission said.

The health authority has revised provisions concerning requirements for medical facilities, surgeons, technical protocols and training in organ transplantation to better monitor the medical practice.
