Key laws and policies
Trinidad and Tobago does not appear to have national laws or policies specific to the practices currently falling within the scope of this discussion.
There is one fertility clinic in Trinidad and Tobago, but no regulation or legislation.
Senate Bill No. 4 of 1999 (An Act Respecting Human Reproductive Technologies and Commercial Transactions Relating to Human Reproduction) would have explicitly prohibited reproductive cloning and regulated human reproductive technologies. However, the bill lapsed at the end of the parliamentary session.
Comment from the health minister indicates there is no new legislation on the agenda: http://newsday.co.tt/sunday_special_report/0,171621.html.
