 en BIOTECH LEGISLATION - LEGISLATIVE STEPS IN NEW ZEALAND TO IMPLEMENT THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE ROYAL COMMISSION ON GENETIC MODIFICATION
Mark Christensen and Ingrid Jamieson

Abstract

In July 2001 the New Zealand Royal Commission on Genetic Modification released its report and recommendations to the government. The Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (Genetically Modified Organisms) Amendment Bill and the Medicines (Restricted Biotechnical Procedures) Amendment Bill are some of the first legislative steps taken by Parliament to implement the Royal Commission's recommendations. This article reviews the changes that these bills make to the law.
