This policy document is part of a response submitted by the Progress Educational Trust (PET) to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority's Consultation on its 8th Code of Practice and Revised Consent Forms.

Will it be easier for you to find the information you're looking for now that the Code of Practice has been organised into subject based guidance notes?

Yes, it will be easier to find information in the HFEA's proposed new Code of Practice than in its predecessor, which was difficult to navigate.

In an ideal world, the number of pages in the Code of Practice might decrease between successive editions, rather than increasing inexorably as it has since the HFEA's inception. But perhaps this is too much to hope for.
