CD231Proposals for amendment of the Genetically Modified Organisms (Contained Use) Regulations 2000

This Consultative Document sets out proposals from HSE to amend the Genetically Modified Organisms (Contained Use) Regulations 2000 (S.I. 2000 No. 2831). The amendments are needed because of differences between the Regulations and Directive 2009/41/EC on the contained use of genetically modified micro-organisms. The European Commission has notified the UK that it does not consider that the European requirements have been fully implemented.

The proposed amendments will be of particular interest to dutyholders involved in work with genetically modified organisms and to others with an interest in this topic.

Responses should be sent by 31 May 2010 to:
