The Netherlands

In short

In the Netherlands, euthanasia and assisted suicide are both criminal acts according to the Dutch penal law (article 293 and article 294). When such an act is performed by a physician, according to the due care criteria of the Law on euthanasia and assisted suicide (2001), the physician is no longer punishable.
