Key laws and policies
- Article 42, Constitución Política de Colombia [Note: The Constitución does not govern ART, but states, "The children born of a matrimony or outside it, adopted or conceived naturally or with scientific assistance, have equal rights and duties. The law will regulate responsibility to the offspring," (thus recognizing that children may be conceived using scientific assistance).]
- Criminal Code (Codigo Penal) (July 24, 2000)
The criminal code prohibits:
- The creation of a human embryo for purposes other than reproduction, but makes an exception for "research and diagnostic purposes if they have a therapeutic goal"
- Reproductive cloning
Permitted and regulated practices
- Anonymous egg donation after screening, and egg sharing are permitted.
PGD and Sex Selection

Accountability and governance
A number of clinics/doctors have signed the ethical standards set by the Latin American Network of Assisted Reproduction in 1995. These standards provide that gamete donation must be uncompensated.
