Legislation

Genetic legislation may be clearly expressed in public health statutes. It may also be embedded in other regulations, administrative rules, or other less obvious statutes, e.g. labor law. Identifying and interpreting state genetics legislation is not necessarily straightforward. One example of genetic-related legislation in Delaware is:

Title 16. Health and Safety. Part II, Chapter 12. Informed Consent and Confidentiality. Subchapter II. Genetic Information
