Abstract: Regulation of ART in Australia consists of a mixed bag of Federal and State legislation and a national regulatory authority involved in accreditation. Access to IVF technology is variable between states and much ethical debate surrounds issues such as 'social sexing' and other access differences, as well as the fate of surplus embryos. Little public debate on restriction of multiple embryo transfer practices has occurred, most likely due to public ignorance of the associated health risks.
