Flag adopted 15 Feb 1794

This post is part of a series about genealogy in France. You can read the complete series HERE.

French Bioethical Law states that DNA testing is only allowed for specific purposes – Medical, Scientific or Judicial reasons.

There is a significant concern relating to paternity and medical tests, with tests being undertaken with supervision, which includes DNA tests.

France remains steadfast in its view, that DNA tests remain illegal, and France is the only country in Europe which takes that view.
