Recommendation 14: Emerging Trends and International Developments

GTEC should routinely monitor international developments relevant to the wider context of the risk analysis of gene technology and its regulation and advise the Regulator accordingly.



Changes to the legislation

11. Recommended amendments to the Act (including consideration of those recommendations made by State or Territory Parliamentary Committees), or alternatives to legislation, which improve the effectiveness, efficiency, fairness, timeliness and accessibility of the regulatory system.


GTEC considers that all non-regulatory mechanisms such as (for example) voluntary agreements, market based instruments, self-audit and other voluntary incentives are unsuitable for the regulation of gene technology at this stage. The enforcement of gene technology regulation is more appropriately regulated by traditional ‘command and control’ regulatory techniques.



Recommendation 15: Changes to Legislation

GTEC recommends that nationally consistent legislation be maintained to regulate gene technology in Australia.
