The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has updated its guidance on exporting gametes and embryos for surrogacy, in a move which will help intended parents through international surrogacy.
NGA Law and our sister organisation Brilliant Beginnings have been at the forefront of winning this change, which will make it easier for intended parents from the UK to send their embryos, sperm or eggs to overseas clinics if they need the help of a surrogate to carry a baby for them. It is an issue which has come to the fore during the pandemic, with international travel restrictions preventing intended parents from travelling themselves for the purposes of fertility treatment.
