We're redesigning our website - we're keen for you to try it so we can hear your views on how it can be improved ahead of the official launch. Head on over to the HFEA BETA to see how it is shaping up.

The Authority

The HFEA Authority meets regularly throughout the year to discuss and determine HFEA policy and practice. The meetings are based around draft papers which have been reviewed by HFEA committees.

The Authority meeting agendas, minutes and papers

The agenda and papers for Authority meetings will be published three days before the meeting date. After the meeting, we will publish key decisions. Formal minutes will be published after they are agreed at the following Authority meeting.
