Facts: ID Release and Non-ID Release donor

  • ID Release means that when the donor child turns 18, they can get the donor´s contact details
  • Non-ID Release means that neither the child, nor the parents can get any more information about the donor, than what’s listed in the donor profile
  • Up until 2006 in Denmark it was only legal to use Non-ID Release donors, and therefore donor children did not have the opportunity to contact the donor
  • Different regulations apply from country to country in terms of using ID-Release and Non-ID Release donors. In some countries only one or the other are permitted
  • Today in Denmark it is now possible to choose individually whether you wish to use an ID Release or Non-ID Release donor
