Fertility Treatment Law

Fertility treatment in the UK is regulated and licensed by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and by the law. 

The HFEA and the law ensures that appropriate safety and quality standards apply at all licensed centres across the UK, and regulates what treatments may be carried out in what circumstances.  For example, the HFEA regulates issues such as the maximum and minimum ages of donors and patients, the importing and exporting of embryos and gametes, and the storage of eggs, sperm and embryos in the UK
