Right of person born from donated gamete or embryo to obtain information
The National Authority for Medicolegal Affairs keeps a register of the donations of gametes and embryos for assisted fertility treatment purposes (donation register). The identification data of each donor and information on the donor code, possible consent concerning confirmation of paternity as referred to in section 16(2) and withdrawal thereof and specification as to whether the donation consisted of sperm, eggs or embryos, as notified by the service provider, shall be recorded in this register.
Right to obtain information
Non-disclosure provisions notwithstanding, a person who may have been born from a donated gamete or embryo shall, upon attaining the age of eighteen (18), be entitled to obtain from the service provider a copy of the consent to treatment and the donor code noted thereon and, by providing the donation register with the code, to learn the identity of the donor.
In the event that assisted fertility treatment as referred to in section 16(2) has been provided and the donor of the sperm has given his consent that he may be confirmed as the father of the child born as a result of such treatment, the mother and the child are entitled to learn from the service provider the donor code and, by providing the donation register with the code, the identity of the donor.
