The Gene Technology Regulator (the Regulator) may make a determination to include dealings with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on the GMO Register according to section 78 of the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act). To be included on the GMO Register, the dealings must first have been authorised by a GMO licence.

Dealings will not be entered onto the GMO Register until the Regulator is satisfied that the risks posed by the dealings are minimal and that it is not necessary for anyone conducting the dealings to be covered by a licence in order to protect the health and safety of people or the environment. (See Part 6, Division 3 of the Act).
