Proposed Regulation – Board of Medical Examiners


NEWARK – The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has proposed amendments to regulations regarding the declaration of brain death in a patient.   

The proposal effectuates P.L. 2013, c. 185 and will amend Board regulations to no longer set forth specific tests that physicians must perform prior to declaring brain death.  Under the proposed amendments, physicians will be required to comply with nationally recognized practice guidelines for declaring brain death.

The proposed regulation, and information on how to submit a comment by March 4, 2017, can be viewed at:
