Reckless deregulation to fast-track new GM products to market

01 December 2017

Many new Genetic Manipulation (GM) techniques and their products will be deregulated immediately if the Gene Technology Regulator's proposals are followed. GM plants, animals, and microbes could secretly come onto our plates and into our environments, un-assessed, unsafe and unlabelled.

SA GM-free secure till 2025

South Australia GM-free is a winner !

Tougher GM laws needed now

20 July 2017

Widespread non-compliance with the Office of Gene Technology Regulator's safety rules and licenses has been confirmed. They are a siren alert for tough, proactive action. The OGTR is now assessing options to deregulate new GM techniques (CRISPR; Talen; ZFN; RNAi).
The Gene Technology Act 2000 clearly mandates that all
new GM techniques must be assessed, regulated and licensed under
the OGTR's national regime. The Precautionary Principle enshrined in the Act should also apply.
