Below is the text from the Incident reporting form for potential non compliances.

This form should be used to report any incident of potential non-compliance arising from dealings with genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This includes Dealings involving Intentional Release (DIR), e.g. crop field trials; through to Dealings Not involving Intentional Release (DNIR), Notifiable Low Risk Dealings (NLRDs) or other authorisations conducted in Certified Facilities or alternate facilities authorised by the Regulator. Please fill out as much information as possible.

Note: Text within PDF forms cannot be saved without the full Adobe Acrobat Suite. Therefore you may need to complete the form in one sitting.The Word document can be saved on your system and completed.

In case of emergency, please contact the OGTR via free call on 1800 181 030 (24 hours), e.g. if it is known or suspected that GMOs have escaped authorised containment.


Has the GMO escaped beyond authorised containment? Has it subsequently been contained / decontaminated?
