Consultation on regulations to implement the HFEA 2008

The Department of Health has announced a consultation on the implementing regulations for the HFEA 2008: “Three of the sets of regulations are required to add further detail to the provisions in the 2008 Act. These are:

  • the procedure for revocation, variation or refusal of licences regulations
  • the procedure for appeals against licensing decisions regulations, and
  • the procedure for disclosure of information for research purposes regulations.

The fourth set of regulations updates the regulations made under the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990, that relate to the extension of the statutory storage periods for gametes and embryos.” The consultation document is available here, and the consultation ends on 30 March 2009.
