The Department of Health's Review of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 is a comprehensive public consultation on the regulation of the storage and use of gametes and embryos for fertility treatment and research in the UK. The consultation considers a range of issues, including the model and scope of regulation and proposals for a single body, the Regulatory Authority for Tissue and Embryos, to replace both the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and the Human Tissue Authority by April 2008. The Department of Health published its report on the consultation in March 2006, and this is discussed here in relation to both the support and criticisms of the model and scope of the current and proposed regulatory frameworks, particularly with regard to policy decision-making by bodies such as HFEA and RATE.
