Australia has a long history of engagement with innovative reproductivetechnologies. Indeed, the development of modern artificial reproductivetechnologies (ART) was pioneered in Australia in the late 1960s and early1970s. In parallel, some of the states of Australia were early adopters oflegislation aimed at regulating certain forms of ART and prohibiting others. Since then, a number of other statutes have been enacted across Australia thathave direct bearing on the practice of human germline genome modificationand research involving human embryos.
