About the Initiative
The European Cryonic Law and Policy Research Initiative is a non-profit legal research initiative created by Lawyer Jordi Sandalinas to study the main legal issues around the legality of cryonics in Europe, according to the laws already established with the aim to encourage national and international organizations to enact legal instruments in favor of Human Cryopreservation when possible.
As a research initiative, it propounds the establishment of a systematic investigation and a scientific research to establish facts or principles and to collect information on cryopreservation with the aim to solve the current lack of regulatory legal framework. Hence, once Human Legal Death is already declared by authorities Crypreservation could be a reality once laws regulate such practices. Discussions are raised since Crypreservation could be considered as a type of embalming protocol. However, the finality is not to bury the human remains once the legal death is declared, but to store the human patient at the cryopreservation facilities located around the world. Thus, a second chance could be given to the cryopatient once technology allows to heal him/her. Several Societies and Foundations are advocating for Longevity and Cryopreservation as well. Even Cryopreservation has won court cases so the last will of the deceased person is respected, but laws do not provide for an effective response in favor of Cryopreservation. The debate is now open for discussion.
