The Assisted Reproductive Technology Technical Advisory Group (ARTTAG) was established in 2016. Its purpose is to advise ICCBBA on the ongoing development of the ISBT 128 Information Standard to support new developments in assisted reproductive technology (ART).

The Membership comprises Technical Experts in ART and Representatives appointed by organizations with an interest in assisted reproductive technology.

In addition to members, liaisons attend meetings. Liaisons are from regulatory authorities or other groups interested in ISBT 128.

Other persons interested in the work of the ARTTAG may attend meetings as observers at the discretion of the chairperson.
