Sperm from one donor can be used to create a maximum of five families, including the donor’s own family, under legislation in force from 1 January 2010.
All donors are required to consent to identifying details about themselves being forwarded to the Donor Register. These details can be passed on to children resulting from the donation when they reach 18 years of age.
Can I be paid to be a sperm donor in Australia?
In Australia it is illegal to receive or make any type of payment for human tissue, including donated sperm. Donors may be reimbursed for reasonable expenses incurred by the person in connection with the supply, such as travel and parking, however they cannot be compensated for lost time at work.
