The Gene Technology Technical Advisory Committee (GTTAC) is a statutory advisory committee established under the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act) to provide scientific and technical advice to the Gene Technology Regulator (the Regulator) and the Legislative and Governance Forum on Gene Technology.
The Regulator seeks advice from GTTAC on licence applications to work with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and on Risk Assessment and Risk Management Plans (RARMPs) prepared for applications. The purpose of this Communiqué is to provide a brief overview of GTTAC’s consideration of applications and RARMPs and, in accordance with the Gene Technology Regulations 2001, to publish committee resolutions given to the Regulator. The Communiqué also provides an overview of any other deliberations of the committee.
