Quality and regulation
Patients or couples searching for an appropriate clinic for their fertility needs may get the benefit of proper diagnosis, treatment and counseling if they are aware of the type of homework they need to do before stepping into the ART center.
The infertile couples in the ordeal of their prolonged failed treatment are likely to be swayed by the misguiding deals. To keep a check on this, ICMR (Indian council of Medical Research) has set some guidelines that should be followed by each and every clinic and any deviation could lead to serious consequences. The practice of ART requires a well synchronized teamwork between the gynecologist, the andrologist, counselor and a program coordinator/director.
All ART clinics banks need to take a temporary registration within six months of the notification of the State Registration Authority by the State Board, and regular registration within 18 months of the above notification. ART clinics Act shall be deemed to have satisfied the provisions of the PC & PNDT Act.
