Statement of ESHRE on the European Commission proposal of viral screening
Date:11/16/2009

ral transmission", explained Dr. Sren Ziebe from the University Hospital of Copenhagen. "How can we document something that never happened?" he added. This interpretation will have a profound impact on all units conducting assisted reproduction.

Most national authorities are in line with ESHRE and see this interpretation of the Directive as not relevant to the ART sector. "The ART field should have a separate specific Directive given that ART is so different in its specifications compared to tissue or organ donations", said Prof. Jean Francois Gurin, from the University of Lyon.

ESHRE acknowledges that non-partner donation is an area with separate requirements. In Denmark viral screening for diseases such as HIV or Hepatitis B is valid for 24 months. In France it is valid for up to 12 months. At the moment the period of validity is interpreted by the national authorities and there seems to be different interpretations and practices at the national level. "It has been suggested to establish a formal working group with professionals in the field of ART and other relevant professionals such as microbiologists as well as national regulators", explained Dr. Sren Ziebe. "This group, if established by the Commission, could be very useful in order to reach a consensus in this area", he said.
