Proposed Donation Guidelines: for family gamete donation, embryo donation, use of donated eggs with donated sperm and surrogacy: consultation document

The Advisory Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technology (ACART) is seeking your feedback on proposed guidelines for family gamete donation, embryo donation, use of donated eggs with donated sperm and surrogacy.

This document seeks public feedback on the Advisory Committee on Assisted Reproductive Technology’s (ACART’s) proposal to replace four separate guidelines with one set that covers the four procedures of: family gamete donation, embryo donation, the use of donated eggs with donated sperm, and clinic-assisted surrogacy.

We also seek feedback on ACART’s advice to the Minister of Health about the scope of cases covered in the revised guidelines. The Human Assisted Reproductive Technology Act 2004 (HART Act) requires ACART to review its guidelines regularly and to consult the public on proposed changes and significant advice to the Minister. 

ACART is seeking feedback by Monday, 13 November 2017.
