Call for comment on Biosafety Regulations


The first meeting of the Biosafety Council will be held on 10 October 2014 during which the Terms of Reference for the Board and the Regulations will be discussed. Currently the Regulations make provision for the following aspects of biosafety:
  • the first set of Regulations are about GMO’s in food, fodder and processing;
  • the second set of Regulations are about GMO’s which are released in the environment; and
  • the third set of Regulations are about GMO’s in laboratories.
Any person interested to view the Regulations for comments, can contact Mr Harald Marggraff at the NAU office (meat@agrinamibia.com.na).

Public consultations will still have to take place.

It is hoped that the Biosafety Act will be implemented latest during 2017.
