ASSISTED REPRODUCTIVE TREATMENT ACT 2008 - SECT 15

Application for review

    (1)     A person may apply to the Patient Review Panel for a review if—

        (a)     under section 14, a presumption against providing a treatment procedure to a woman applies to the person; or

        (b)     under section 10(2)(a) the person is ineligible for treatment; or

        (c)     a registered ART provider or a doctor has refused to carry out a treatment procedure on a woman because the provider or doctor reasonably believes that a child that may be born as a result of a treatment procedure carried out on the woman would be at risk of abuse or neglect.

    (2)     After considering an application for review made under this section, the Patient Review Panel may decide that there is no barrier to the person undergoing treatment procedures generally or a treatment procedure of a specified kind.

    (3)     In deciding the application for review, the Patient Review Panel must have regard to—

        (a)     the guiding principles referred to in section 5; and

        (b)     whether carrying out a treatment procedure, whether generally or of a specified kind, on the person—

              (i)     is for a therapeutic goal; and

              (ii)     is consistent with the best interests of a child who would be born as a result of the treatment procedure.
