Guidance Note for ART providers on legislative changes
This Guidance Note is intended to provide implementation support to registered assisted reproductive treatment providers (ART providers) in Victoria to ensure a smooth transition to new laws relating to the removal of existing requirements to conduct criminal records and child protection order checks under the Assisted Reproductive Treatment Act 2008 (ART Act). It is not intended to be legal advice. ART providers may seek their own legal advice in relation to the legislative changes. The Guidance Note is intended to assist ART providers in understanding the legislative changes and their implications, and support ART providers in making any necessary updates to their treatment procedure consent forms and associated patient materials, policies and website content.
