The Forum is a knowledge exchange unit that aims to connect social science research on genomics and related areas of the life sciences with policymakers, business, the media and civil society. The Forum also has a capacity-building remit, strengthening UK and international research capacity in this field, and in particular building capacity for interdisciplinary research by enabling dialogue and networking between researchers in different disciplines. The process of debate and policymaking leading to its passage has remained controversial after the fact, as have its myriad provisions and their impact in practice. The majority of the HFE Act came into force in October , and a second workshop 5 was planned that month at the Genomics Network Annual Conference, to be topical and timely for regulators and policymakers, scientists and clinicians, social scientists and the media. Attendance at the Retrospective had identified that cutting-edge research on the HFE Act was being done at postgraduate level.

Dorothea Gartland. Private Children Law. Revocation of an adoption order and declaration of parentage by Munby P after the clinic mislaid forms and the child was subsequently adopted by the parent. The clinic had lost or mislaid two forms including the important Form PP signed by Y. There was a Treatment Checklist which recorded that Y attended, consented to treatment and that the forms were completed. X gave consent, as did Y, and so X was entitled to a declaration that Y is the legal parent of the child. This case was more complex than others as when X and Y were told of the error, they were advised that the only solution was for Y to adopt the child.
This note suggests that, viewed from a feminist perspective, the reforms contained in the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act represent a missed opportunity to re-think the appropriate model of regulation to govern fertility treatment and embryology research in the UK. It also highlights the importance of media debates, which were highly selective, to the reform process, and suggests that in order to inject feminist values into the process of legislative reform, feminists need to become more media savvy. In the short term, it suggests that there is little prospect of a radical re-thinking of the appropriate ethico-legal response to the wide variety of family forms that reproductive technologies potentially enable, much less of considering our ethical obligations to the new forms of embryos that are now permitted by the Act. In the meantime, however, it argues that these issues provide productive opportunities for feminist legal theorists to address questions that have been erased or obscured in the course of the reforms.

In the wake of political upheaval, the Human Fertilisation and Embryo Authority HFEA has faced increasing insecurity over its future as a pivotal regulatory body of fertility practices in the UK. HFEA regulates activities by means of licensing, audit, and inspection of fertility centers and maintaining the Code of Practice, which ensures the optimum undertaking of licensed activities by fertility centers. In , amendments to the Act came into force representing an amalgamation of cumulative proposals, debates, and changes in legislation, which have shaped the world of reproductive medicine.
