Donor code

An administrative reference number used by clinics to track the use of an individual donor's eggs or sperm. Some people use these codes to help them find genetic siblings, using contact networks and groups that aim to support donor-conceived people, their families, and donors. Whereas the USA's Donor Sibling Registry facilitates and confirms connections primarily by using donor codes, neither UK clinics nor the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority are currently permitted to release such codes. Instead, people who were donor-conceived in the UK can seek siblings via Donor Sibling Link.
