Consultation description

This consultative document contains proposals to consolidate the Genetically Modified Organisms (Contained use) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2001 and its amending regulations.  

The consolidation is not intended to re-write the substance of the regulations. Instead, the opportunity has been taken to make a number of changes that make the regulations more risk based and proportionate and reflect experience of applying the regulations since 2001.
