Management of the Central and Voluntary Registers

From 1 March 2017, the Victorian Assisted Reproductive Treatment Authority (VARTA) commenced managing the Central Register and Voluntary Register (Donor Treatment Registers). This is in accordance with changes to the Assisted Reproductive Treatment Act 2008. The Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages Victoria no longer has a legislated function relating to the management of the Donor Treatment Registers.

VARTA is a statutory authority funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. VARTA provides independent information and support for individuals, couples and health professionals on fertility and issues related to assisted reproductive treatment.

All queries relating to the Donor Treatment Registers, including those relating to new, existing and past applications, who can apply for access, what information is held and what information may be released, should be directed to VARTA.
