There are two types of members:
1.1. Full members are centres that actively report anonymous but otherwise full information on all aspects of PGD including stimulation and oocyte retrieval information, full embryology information, as well as all data on PGD testing, embryo transfer, pregnancy and long-term follow-up data.
1.2. All full members shall have access to the anonymised database via their data managers, who are appointed as such by their centre and should be paid-up members of ESHRE.
1.3. All correspondence between the PGD Consortium and the centres will be via the data-managers.
1.4. Each full member centre shall have one vote in any PGD Consortium ballot.
Affiliate members are either the centres (laboratories) that perform the genetic/chromosomal analysis, or the assisted reproductive centres performing the cycles and embryo biopsy; they do not have direct access to all aspects of the PGD cycles that they perform.
2.1 Affiliate members report data on the aspect to the PGD cycles they have performed; centres involved in collaborations for PGD cycles will ensure (to the best of their ability) that data submitted to the PGD consortium will not be duplicated.
2.2 All Affiliate members shall have access to the anonymised database via their data-managers, who are appointed as such by their centre and should be paid up members of ESHRE.
2.3 All correspondence between the PGD Consortium and the centres will be via the data-managers.
2.4 Each Affiliate member centre shall have half a vote in any PGD Consortium ballot.
