Inquiry Details

Managing information related to donor conception

The Committee is conducting an inquiry into the management of information relating to donor conception in NSW.   Under current legislation only those people conceived after 2010 have the right to access information about their donor, as donations made before this date did not have to be recorded on a central register.   The Inquiry will explore a range of questions including whether retrospective access to information should be granted; what issues this would likely raise with individuals and donors; what support should be provided; and how donor information should be managed and by whom.
This inquiry was self-referred on 15 November 2012.

Resolution passed 15 November 2012, Minutes No 15, item 3 page 1

That the Committee inquire into and report on the management of information related to donor conception in NSW, with particular regard to:

a) whether people conceived by donor conception prior to January 2010 should have access to donor conception information, including information that identifies their donor and donor conceived siblings;

b) which agency should manage donor conception information and provide services related to the release of this information;

c) what counselling or support services and public education measures are necessary to support people who are seeking access to donor conception information;

d) any other relevant matter.
