Introduction

We are the UK’s independent regulator of fertility treatment and research using human embryos. A world-class expert organisation in the fertility sector, we were the first statutory body of our type in the world.

We provide free, clear and impartial information to all affected by fertility treatment. We are the UK Government's independent regulator overseeing fertility treatment and research.

We aim to ensure that everyone who steps into a fertility clinic, and everyone born as a result of treatment, receives high quality care.

We do this by licensing, monitoring and inspecting fertility clinics – find out more about how we regulate – and providing free, clear and impartial information about fertility treatment, clinics and egg, sperm and embryo donation.

We also collect data about fertility treatments. This information is invaluable for many reasons, including being the way that people conceived with a donor can learn more about their genetic origins.

Our strategy guides everything we do and our business plan keeps us on track for the year.


We were set up by legislation as an ‘arm’s length body’ of the Department of Health, meaning we work independently on behalf of the Government.
