Geneva: ISS surrogacy work continues with the initial drafting of principles

On 10 and 11 March, experts Clare Achmed, Nigel Cantwell, Patricia Fronek, David Smolin, Katarina Trimmings, Michael Wells –Greco and the ISS team moved forward with drafting seven principles to better protect children in international surrogacy arrangements (ISAs) – hosted at the law firm Charles Russel Speechley. The principles included best interests of the child, parentage, financial transactions, child as an independant rights holder, consent of the surrogate mother and principle of non discrimination. This preparatory work will be discussed by a wider group of experts/observers including government representatives in an effort to advocate for appropriate regulation of ISAs based on international standards.
