Requesting data about a sperm or egg donor in cases of artificial insemination

As a donor child or as a parent of a donor child, you can request information about the sperm or egg donor, for example if you want to know what the donor looked like or the donor’s profession. This data is managed by the Artificial Fertilisation Donor Information Office (Stichting Donorgevens Kunstmatige Bevruchting, DKB). The DKB does not have any donor data from before 1 June 2004.
