Permits

Pursuant to Section 2 of the Dutch Special Medical Procedures Act (Wet op de Bijzondere Medische Verrichtingen), MUMC+ has been granted a special permit by the ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport allowing it to perform IVF and PGD procedures.

The PGD Regulations of February 2009 (refer to Staatscourant of 5 April 2013) stipulate that it is desirable that the Netherlands have one centre performing PGD procedures. This requirement can be met by having several centres offer IVF, then transporting the cells removed for analysis to Maastricht, where they will be properly diagnosed. Such cooperative Transport PGD services are currently offered by the IVF centres of Utrecht UMC, Groningen UMC and Amsterdam AMC.
