Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Standards for Laboratory Services V3 EN

$100.00 CAD

The Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Standards for Clinical Services are used to assess quality at the point of service delivery. ART services are defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Committee for Monitoring Assisted Reproductive Technology (ICMART) as “all treatments or procedures that include the in vitro handling of both human oocytes and sperm, or embryos, for the purpose of establishing a pregnancy”.The standards include accessibility of ART services, assessment and diagnosis, counselling, consent, treatment, management, follow-up, and disposition. They are based upon the five key elements of Service Excellence: clinical leadership, people, process, information, and performance.

The standards contain the following sections:

  • Investing in Assisted Reproductive Technology Services
  • Having the Right People
  • Delivering Assisted Reproductive Technology Services
  • Maintaining Client Information
  • Monitoring the Safety and Quality of Assisted Reproductive Technology Services 

    This is a standalone HSO standard and is not meant for assessment purposes. If you are part of an assessment program (such as accreditation) with one of our partners such as Accreditation Canada, NIAZ, IQG or others, your assessment provider will provide you with the assessment standard before it is introduced to your program. For information on assessment standards or to obtain the copy specific to your program, please contact your assessment provider.

    Requesting printed standards: Standards purchased online are delivered as printable PDF downloads. If you would like a copy printed and shipped to you, please email
