Abstract

In Chile, as in the majority of countries in Latin America, there are no laws regulating the practice of assisted reproductive technology (ART), and therefore, no official guidelines are available regulating the establishment of new centers, criteria for registering and reporting their data, and, in general, for the provision of this form of medical care. Quality control (QC) protocols for clinical and laboratory interventions are therefore inexistent as part of governmental policies. The only guidelines and regulations are those imposed by the Latin American Network of Assisted Reproduction (REDLARA) to centers who are part or wish to be part of the Latin American registry of ART (RLA). In Chile, as in many other countries in the region, the vast majority of centers performing ART are part of REDLARA; thus, they are all subjected to the same regulations and QC procedures.
