British Andrology Society Statement on changes to the UK donor system announced by the HFEA

The British Andrology Society welcomes the Department of Health’s long awaited decision on the future of the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority and Human Tissue Authority.   It is our hope that this decision to keep research and  clinical treatment unified under one regulator, but review how we can achieve more efficiencies will  result quickly in improvements in  organisation and delivery of the service. BAS looks forward to taking an active part in the ongoing review of HFEA function in particular with regard to the regulation of sperm donation in UK and will work with them to implement this objective.
