• The donor of sperm must be informed that the offspring will not know his identity. However the child has the right to seek the DNA fingerprint information of his biological father once he/she is 18 years old. The name and address are not to be disclosed since they are individual's personal identity.

• The couple however is not obliged to provide the information though the child has a right once he/she reaches the age of 18, but no attempt must be made by the couple to hide this information from the child when the information becomes critical for the child.

• A third-party donor and a surrogate mother must relinquish in writing all parental rights concerning the offspring and vice versa.

• Sperms produced by the male under the age of 21 years should not be used.

• Collection of gametes from a dying person will only be permitted if the widow wishes to have a child.

• Use of sperm donated by a relative or a known friend of either the wife or the husband shall not be permitted. It is the duty of the clinic to get the sample from the sperm bank after a thorough screening. Personal identity of the donor will not be revealed. However, all other information such as height, weight, complexion, medical history, DNA fingerprint etc is made available to the couple.

• Semen from two individuals must never be mixed before use, under any circumstance.
