Role of ethics in organ transplantation has been increasing with increasing number of organ transplants. Doing an ethical transplantation is of crucial importance. It is the liability of transplant team to follow the international and national ethical standards. Often, it is perceived that ethical and legal issues are the same. With the introduction of various ethical guidelines by international community, it is prudent that transplant team and the public abide by the existing regulations to avoid unanticipated outcomes of a successful transplant. Transplantation activity should be carried out with the premise that it is within the legal and ethical perspectives of that particular country. Transnational or transcontinental understanding of ethical perspectives by the nations actively involved in organ transplantation would definitely curb unethical and illegal elements.
