  3. retaining the Regulator’s broad discretion to apply precaution as a part of the risk analysis framework within the GT Act; and

  4. amending the Functions of GTEC (s 112) to expressly include an advisory role for GTEC relating to the review and implementation of a precautionary approach to risk analysis.
