Abortion services

In order to perform an abortion or terminate a pregnancy at a healthcare facility which is not a public hospital, authorisation from IVO is required.

You apply by submitting information on the healthcare facility where the service shall be provided. There is no special application form for this purpose, rather you fill in the information that is relevant for the authorisation yourself:

  • head
  • authorised representative
  • how the service is currently operated and how it will be operated in the future
