A one-day international symposium, The State of ART Regulation–International Perspectives, will be held in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on Friday November 23 2001.

Participants at the symposium will hear from expert speakers about the status of regulation of assisted reproductive technology in different countries around the world and discuss the challenges faced by those regulating and accrediting infertility services. The symposium will be held prior to the 17th world Congress on Fertility and Sterility, which is scheduled for November 24 2001 to December 1 2001.
