Recommendations of the Warnock Committee.

  • Published 1984 in Lancet

Abstract

Reproduced here are the recommendations of Britain's Committee of Inquiry Into Human Fertilisation and Embryology (the Warnock Committee). The Committee first addressed the need to establish a regulatory authority to monitor infertility services and research, and to license practitioners and facilities offering such services. Among the other topics taken up were artificial insemination; sperm, ovum, and embryo donation; in vitro fertilization; use of frozen sperm, ova, and embryos; research with embryos; informed consent of participants; disposal of embryos; National Health Service planning; legal implications; and surrogate motherhood arrangements.
