Guidelines and Forms for Certifications of Physical Containment Facilities

Under the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act), the Gene Technology Regulator (the Regulator) may issue technical and procedural guidelines in relation to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) (under section 27 of the Act), in relation to certification of facilities to specified containment levels (section 90) and in relation to accreditation of organisations (section 98). The Act, the Gene Technology Regulations 2001 or instruments issued by the Regulator can require compliance with these guidelines in conducting dealings with GMOs or in obtaining and maintaining certification or accreditation.
