If the Regulator is satisfied that a person has come into possession of a GMO inadvertently the Regulator may, with the agreement of the person, treat the person as having made an inadvertent dealings application under section 40A of the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act). A person may also apply for a licence under section 40 of the Act in respect of an inadvertent dealing. The Regulator may issue a temporary licence (no longer than 12 months) to the person for the purposes of disposing of the GMO in a manner which protects the health and safety of people and the environment. Consideration of Inadvertent Dealings applications follows simpler process than required for other application types.
