Euthanasia Code 2022

The Euthanasia Code has been fully updated. The Euthanasia Code 2022 specifies the criteria against which the RTE tests euthanasia notifications. This way doctors know in advance where they stand. Patients, family and other interested parties gain a better understanding of how a euthanasia procedure works. The main purpose of this code is to maintain and where possible improve the very careful euthanasia practice that has been established in the Netherlands. This is the second updated version of the Euthanasia Code and is available in several languages ​​(English, German, French and Spanish).
