Technical review of the Gene Technology Regulations 2001 (the Technical Review)

The NFF recognise the potential of gene technology as a valuable tool within agricultural production systems. The NFF is supportive of the Technical Review’s objective to clarify definitions and bring GT regulations in line with scientific developments. The NFF recognise that a range of new technology has been developed that creates ambiguity as to what constitutes a GMO, and the NFF is supportive of the OGTR clarifying these definitions, particularly in relation to organisms that have not inherited traits as a result of GT or those that are temporarily modified but the modification is no longer present in the organism.
