Bélgica - organismos credenciados (Arts 10, 11 e 12)

La Belgique est un Etat fédéral. Ce sont les communautés (communauté française, communauté flamande et communauté germanophone) qui sont compétentes pour agréer les organismes pouvant intervenir comme intermédiaire dans une adoption.

Jusqu'à ce jour, aucun service n'a encore été agréé par la Communauté germanophone. Les adoptions réalisées dans cette communauté se pratiquent dès lors dans le cadre d'un accord de coopération via les services d'adoption agréés de la communauté française.

La liste est subdivisée sur base de leur agrément par les Communautés compétentes.
