Operations & Safety Committee

The Operations and Safety Committee (OSC) seeks to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of the organ donation and transplantation system. The Committee reviews de-identified transplant and donation-related adverse events and near-misses reported to the OPTN by the transplant community, in order to identify potential improvements and policy revisions that may prevent future such occurrences. Based on input from the community and committee experience, and with collaboration from other committees as needed, the Committee may initiate, develop and recommend projects to the Board of Directors.
