Country specific requirements (Standards)

To ensure that donor sperm from Cryos comply with country specific requirements, we operate with different Standards.

All units marked with the EU Standard comply with the specific requirements in force in European Union at the time of donation. All units marked with the DK Standard comply with the specific requirements in Denmark which were in force at the time of donation and subsequently with the other standards. The individual units marked fulfil the requirements regarding screening, quarantine, age, and donor type (ID Release or Non-ID Release).

However, some clinics in Germany may have more strict requirements, that are not fulfilled by the DE-standard. Accordingly, Cryos cannot guarantee that all clinics in Germany will offer treatment with the straws of a donor released according to the DE-standard.

All donors and all units have been selected and screened according to Cryos International’s extensive quality assurance, operational procedures and policies for donor recruitment, assessment and screening.
