Consultation open: Queensland Assisted reproductive technology industry

Consultation open: Queensland Assisted reproductive technology industry

The Regulation of Assisted Reproductive Technology Services Consultation Paper is now available and open for feedback until 25 February 2024.

This follows the Minister for Health, Mental Health and Ambulance Services and Minister for Women’s commitment to regulate the assisted reproductive technology (ART) industry in Queensland by 2024.

The paper is designed to help inform considerations for regulating ART services in Queensland.

It sets out the key issues that need to be considered including:

  • requirements that should be satisfied before a person accesses ART treatment;
  • how gametes and embryos should be used and stored;
  • the introduction of a licensing system for ART providers; and
  • how information relating to ART should be collected and kept.

Regulating ART services in Queensland has the potential to be a significant change, and it is critical that this is informed by the views of those who will be affected. This paper provides a framework for key stakeholders, including ART providers, consumers, peak and representative bodies and clinicians to articulate and share their views.

Each section of the paper includes questions that we encourage responses to.

You can have your say to inform the development of the regulation of ART services, by providing a written submission, responding to the questions, by emailART@health.qld.gov.au

More information is available on the Queensland Government website: https://www.getinvolved.qld.gov.au/gi/consultation/12750/view.html

The closing date for feedback is 25 February 2024.

For more information please contact the Queensland Health ART Unit by emailing ART@health.qld.gov.au.
