The Human Fertilisation and Embryology (Statutory Storage Period for Embryos and Gametes) (Amendment) Regulations 2009

FRI 09/10/2009 - These Regulations amend the Human Fertilisation and Embryology (Statutory Storage Period for Embryos and Gametes) Regulations 2009 ("the 2009 Regulations").

Regulation 2 clarifies that the 2009 Regulations determine the maximum storage period that a licence may specify for embryos (or as the case may be gametes).

Regulation 3 ensures that embryos lawfully stored from 1 October 2009 by virtue of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology (Supplementary Provision) Order 2009 fall within regulation 3 of the 2009 Regulations, and are therefore eligible for extended storage periods provided the other criteria in that regulation are met.

The Regulations came into force on 1 October 2009.
