(a) A person authorized to make an anatomical gift under W.S. 35-5-209 may make an anatomical gift by a document of gift signed by the person making the gift or by that person's oral communication that is electronically recorded or is contemporaneously reduced to a record and signed by the individual receiving the oral communication.

If more than one (1) member of the prior class is reasonably available, the gift made by a person authorized under W.S. 35-5-209 may be:
(i) Amended only if a majority of the reasonably available members agree to the amending of the gift; or
(ii) Revoked only if a majority of the reasonably available members agree to the revocation of the gift or if they are equally divided as to whether to revoke the gift.
(c) A revocation under subsection (b) of this section is effective only if, before an incision has been made to remove a part from the donor's body or before invasive procedures have begun to prepare the recipient, the procurement organization, transplant hospital or physician or technician knows of the revocation.
