Historical Background

The Uniform Determination of Death Act was completed by the Uniform Law Commissioners in 1980, in cooperation with the American Medical Association, the American Bar Association and the President's Commission on Medical Ethics. It replaces the Uniform Brain Death Act of 1978. It has been enacted by 37 states, Disctrict of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

UDDA provides a comprehensive basis for determining death in all situations. This is a technical act which merely defines death clinically, and does not deal with suicide, assisted suicide, and right to die.*

The act is also known as Uniform Definition of Death Act.
