OGTROffice of the Gene Technology Regulator
References in periodicals archive ?
OGTR acts to regulate only the use of GMOs in the Australian Commonwealth, not GM products.
There is no adequate appeal against the OGTR for unpopular decisions, and the regulator has legal immunity.
Instead, an ad hoc gap-fill model was adopted, where many GEO proposals bypass the OGTR.
The GeneEthics' model for a OGTR would establish a `one stop shop' whereby all applications to use GE processes or deal in any way with GE products would be submitted directly to the OGTR, without exception.
