CE(06)05

Dear Colleague,

Consent forms

I am writing to inform you of the publication of the new HFEA consent forms.  These will replace the 00(6), 00(7), 00(9), 96(8) and the form at Appendix B of the Code of Practice for consent to the disclosure of identifying information to a person who is not covered by a licence.

The new forms are intended to be easier and more straightforward to complete; all follow the same design allowing them to be easily recognisable as HFEA consent forms.

There are now separate forms for treatment, donation and storage, and each of these has a male and female version.  There are eight new forms:

  • MD Form Consent to the use and storage of sperm and embryos in donation
  • WD Form Consent to the use and storage of eggs and embryos in donation
  • MT Form Consent to the use of sperm and use and storage of embryos in treatment or research
  • WT Form Consent to the use of eggs and use and storage of embryos in treatment or research
  • MS Form Consent to the storage of sperm
  • WS Form Consent to the storage of eggs
  • ES Form Extension to embryo storage for more than five years
  • CD Form Consent to disclosure of identifying information about fertility treatment to another person who is not covered by a licence

If you require any further information about the consent forms, please contact the HFEA inspector for your centre.

Yours sincerely,

Angela NcNab
Chief Executive
