Work involving the use or production of genetically modified organisms is regulated by the Genetically Modified Organisms (Contained Use) Regulations 2000.
The main requirements of the Regulations are that a risk assessment must be carried out for the work and that this is approved by a local Genetic Modification Safety Committee (GMSC).
Genetic modification in relation to an organism is defined as "the altering of the genetic material in that organism by a way that does not occur naturally by mating or a natural recombination or both".
The Safety Office has issued the following guidance documents to assist researches in compliance with the regulations:
