Preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is now well-established and provided in many European countries. However, regulations, professional standards and accreditation requirements can differ notably. Furthermore, no comprehensive independent data exist about practice and provision in Europe, nor about the quality assurance practices and procedures designed to optimize the quality of the results.

The present report sets out the findings of the study.
