Notifiable Low Risk Dealings (NLRDs) are scheduled in the Regulations, and are dealings with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that have been assessed as posing minimal risk to the health and safety of people and the environment provided certain risk management conditions are met.
Regulation 13 specifies the circumstances under which a person may undertake an NLRD. This includes that the dealing must have been assessed by an Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) to be an NLRD, and must be undertaken in accordance with the IBC’s record of assessment (RoA). Certain information about NLRD assessments must also be provided to the Gene Technology Regulator (the Regulator).
