Australia's OGTR Invites Comments on Commercial Import and Distribution of GM ChrysanthemumNovember 2, 2022
The Australian Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR) invites comments from the public to assess an application from the International Flower Developments Pty. Ltd. for the commercial import and distribution of chrysanthemums genetically modified (GM) for altered flower color. The GM chrysanthemum cut flowers would be sold Australia-wide but are not intended for human food.
The Gene Regulator has prepared a Risk Assessment and Risk Management Plan (RARMP) for this application and welcomes written submissions on issues relating to the protection of human health and safety and the environment prior to making a decision on whether or not to issue the license. Submissions referenced for DIR 191 should be received by December 20, 2022.
For more details on how to submit comments, visit the DIR 191 page on the OGTR website.
