Independent review of the HFEA published

Findings and recommendations of the HFEA review published.

The HFEA welcomes the Independent Review report published today. The report recognises our important work regulating fertility treatment and human embryo research as a discrete and specialised area of medical practice and scientific research.

We welcome the review’s conclusion that the HFEA should remain as an executive non-departmental public body and that the HFEA meets all three Cabinet Office tests for continuing to exist – that we perform a technical function, that the function needs to be delivered with political impartiality; and that there is a need for the function to be delivered independently to establish the facts.

We will review the recommendations in detail and discuss them at the next public Authority meeting in January 2024.

Review date: 23 November 2025
