Art der Erklärung : Vorbehalte
KroatienReservation contained in the instrument of ratification deposited on 28 November 2003 - Or. Engl.
In accordance with Article 36 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Dignity of the Human Being with Regard to the Application of Biology and Medicine: Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine, the Republic of Croatia puts forward a reservation with regard to the conditions regulated in Article 20, paragraph 2, sub-paragraph ii of the Convention.
The Republic of Croatia excludes the limitation within Article 20, paragraph 2, sub-paragraph ii of the Convention, which exceptionally allows the removal of regenerative tissue from a person who is not able to consent solely when no compatible donor with the ability to consent is available, and the recipient is a brother or a sister of the donor. The limitation does not allow the removal of regenerative tissue (bone marrow) from a minor for the benefit of his/her parent. Such a limitation is not compatible with the Law of the Republic of Croatia in force – the Removal and Transplantation of Human Body Parts Act (Official Gazette No. 53/91), which allows the transplantation of regenerative tissue from a minor for the benefit of his/her parent. The Republic of Croatia hereby protects the vital interests of an underage donor, thereby saving the life of the donor’s parent who is of the utmost importance (for the minor).
The Republic of Croatia will apply Article 20, paragraph 2, sub-paragraph ii of the Convention, to the effect that the receiver is a parent, a brother or a sister of the donor.
