The scheme sets and maintains minimum standards for clinics or centres offering assisted reproductive technology, and encourages continuous improvement in the quality of care offered to people accessing fertility treatment in Australia and New Zealand.
The scheme is based on the Code of Practice for Assisted Reproductive Technology Units in Australia; and NZS 8181 – Fertility Services and an associated Fertility Services Audit Workbook in New Zealand. Requirements of the two standards are consistent.
Applicant CABs will need to comply with the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee Certification Scheme (RTAC Scheme) – Fertility Society of Australia.
As this is a product scheme, applicants also need to comply with ISO/IEC 17065:2012 – Conformity assessment - Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services.
- Enables clinics or centres offering assisted reproductive technology to demonstrate that their services comply with best practice.
- Encourages continuous improvement in service delivery.
