Human Genetics Advisory Commission
 
Welcome to the website of the Human Genetics Advisory Commission (HGAC).

The HGAC was operational from December 1996 to December 1999. During that time it offered Government independent advice on issues arising from developments in human genetics, addressing the following priorities:

  • Insurance and genetic testing - a report was published in December 1997

  • Cloning - a report produced jointly with the Human Embryology and Fertilisation Authority was published in December 1998

  • Employment and genetic testing - a report was published in July 1999.
