Victorian Legislation on IVF

Melbourne IVF congratulates the new legislation passed on 4th June by the Victorian Government which removes mandatory police and child protection orders for people undergoing assisted reproductive treatments (ART), making access to ART easier and fairer for all. The new legislation passed on 4 June 2020 and the amendments are expected to commence 28 days after Royal Assent which should occur next week. 

If you are in the beginning of your journey or will only commence treatment after 8 July 2020, you will not need to apply for a police or child protection order check.
