Updated digital edition of Legislation on biotechnology in the Nordic countries

04.12.2018
The Nordic Committee on Bioethics and NordForsk is launching the fifth edition of Legislation on biotechnology in the Nordic countries. The report provides an up-to-date overview of legislation in a variety of areas, including assisted reproduction, human biobanks, cloning and embryo research.

The report was first published in 2014, and has since gained the interest of practitioners, researchers and legal professionals in the Nordic countries and Europe in general. 

One of the Nordic Committee on Bioethics tasks is to follow legislative developments in biotechnology in the Nordic countries, and given the high pace of change in matters related to bioethics, the committee and NordForsk believe it is important to update this overview on an annual basis, for instance to promote understanding of the somewhat different laws on bioethical issues within the Nordic region.

About the Nordic Committee on Bioethics

It was founded in 1989 to promote Nordic cooperation and exchange of information in the area of bioethics between scientists, parliamentarians, opinion leaders and public officials. The committee is made up of two members from each Nordic country. Members are nominated nationally and are appointed for a three-year term by the NordForsk Board. The committee selects its chair from among the members and the Chair rotates annually among the countries. The Nordic Committee on Bioethics has been administered under the auspices of NordForsk since 2014.
