A regulatory impact assessment of Human Fertilisation and Embryology (HFE) (Appeals) Regulations 2009.



The Human Fertilisation and Embryology (HFE) Act 2008 (“2008 Act) requires regulations to be made to set out the processes for appealing against decisions of the Human Fertilisation And Embryology Authority (HFEA) as well as set up an Appeals Committee. There is a legal requirement for these regulations to be made. The HFE (Appeals) Regulations 2009 replace the previous licensing and appeals regulations. The regulations set out the constitution and procedure of the Appeals Committee (“the Committee”).
