Link to an amendment published at 84 FR 51822, Sept. 30, 2019.

A transplant center must be included in the emergency preparedness planning and the emergency preparedness program as set forth in §482.15 for the hospital in which it is located. However, a transplant center is not individually responsible for the emergency preparedness requirements set forth in §482.15.

(a) Standard: Policies and procedures. A transplant center must have policies and procedures that address emergency preparedness. These policies and procedures must be included in the hospital's emergency preparedness program.

(b) Standard: Protocols with hospital and OPO. A transplant center must develop and maintain mutually agreed upon protocols that address the duties and responsibilities of the transplant center, the hospital in which the transplant center is operated, and the OPO designated by the Secretary, unless the hospital has an approved waiver to work with another OPO, during an emergency.
