Complement Genomics Ltd. (trading as dadcheck) has been added to the list of accredited bodies approved by the Ministry of Justice to carry out court-directed tests for parentage.

Courts have a statutory power to direct a scientific test to ascertain the parentage of a child when one party does not want testing to be done. The courts have this power under section 20 of the Family Law Reform Act 1969.

If the court makes such a direction, they must choose a tester from the list of accredited bodies maintained by the Ministry of Justice.
