The Donor Conceived Register (DCR) is designed to help other people who are donor conceived, those people who were donors and those affected by donor conception. The main objective of the Donor Conceived Register is to match donors and donor-conceived people and/or donor-conceived people sharing the same donor.

In August 1991 the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act came into force. The HFEA Act requires the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA; the statutory body) to keep a database of every IVF treatment carried out and a database relating to all cycles and use of donated eggs, sperm and embryos since that date.

You can read more about the DCR and find useful resources and leaflets on our Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust website Donor Conceived Register (DCR) - Liverpool Womens NHS Foundation Trust

You will also find useful information on the The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) website.
