Monitoring and Compliance

The Monitoring and Compliance Section supports the Gene Technology Regulator by undertaking monitoring, audits, inspections and investigations under the auspices of the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act). Monitoring and compliance activities also comprise risk assessment and management, reviews of an organisation's activities and reporting.

The aim of the OGTR monitoring and compliance activities is to ensure that dealings with Genetically Modified Organism (GMOs) comply with regulatory requirements. These requirements are designed to meet the object of the Act:

To protect the health and safety of people, and to protect the environment, by identifying risks posed by or as a result of gene technology, and by managing those risks through regulating certain dealings with GMOs.
