Review of Part B of the Ethical Guidelines for the Use of Assisted Reproductive Technology in Clinical Practice and Research, 2007

Closed on Wednesday, 30 April 2014, 05:00pm (AEDT). Submissions are no longer being accepted.

The National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC) Australian Health Ethics Committee (AHEC) is conducting a review of Part B of the Ethical Guidelines on the Use of Assisted Reproductive Technology in Clinical Practice and Research, 2007 (ART guidelines). Part B of the ART guidelines provides ethical guidelines for the clinical practice of ART. AHEC is conducting a public consultation on the current ethical guidance in Part B of the ART guidelines.

At this stage in the review, no revisions to the current ethical advice have been proposed. The aim of this consultation is to:

  • determine the usefulness of the current ethical guidance,
  • identify any current gaps in the ethical guidance,
  • identify any new technologies, or new uses of old technology, that may require further or different ethical guidance,
  • inform the development of revised ethical guidance.

Whilst submitters are encouraged to comment on any aspect of Part B of the ART guidelines, a number of specific questions are asked throughout the public consultation document (attached below).

A template for your response is also provided below and your use of this template is encouraged.
