Overview of legislation, regulation, funding and registries of ART and IUI in Europe
The European IVF-monitoring Consortium (EIM) produced an overview on ART (assisted reproduction techniques) and IUI (intra uterine insemination). They collected the information about regulation, funding and registries in European countries for the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE).
The study question was: How are ART and IUI regulated, funded and registered in European countries?
Of the 43 countries performing ART and IUI in Europe, and participating in the survey, specific legislation exists in only 39 countries, public funding (also available in the 39 countries) varies across and sometimes within countries and national registries are in place in 31 countries.
The report reflects the situation in 43 countries on 31 December 2018. The changes in legislation that occurred since then are not included in the data presented.
