What is the legal situation?

Extract from the Austrian Reproductive Medicine Act: The examination of the third party and his semen must ensure that the semen is capable of reproduction in compliance with the respective state-of-the-art of medical science and experience and that its use does not pose any health risks to the woman or the desired child.

The semen of a third-party donor may only be used for medically assisted reproduction if the third party has given his written permission to the hospital to such use and to the issuing of information. The consent can be revoked at any time, to the effect that any further use is impermissible.

A third-party donor may always only provide his semen for purposes of medically assisted reproduction to the same hospital. The provision of semen for medically assisted reproduction must not be the subject of a legal transaction in return for payment. From the age of fourteen, the child fathered from the semen of a third party upon request has to be granted access to the records and to the provision of information from these records.
