The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 (Remedial) Order 2018

This order amends the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 following a declaration by the High Court that s.54 of the Act was incompatible with Art.14 ECHR, in that it only allowed couples to apply for a parental order. The order will amend the Act to allow for a sole applicant for a parental order, and makes provisions consequential on this change.
