First GMO Approvals for New Zealand under New Law

Mark Christensen and Martin Williams, Russell McVeagh McKenzie Bartleet & Co., Auckland, New Zealand

Code Number:AU99008

New Zealand's Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act which controls genetic modifications was discussed in the September/October 1998 issue of Australasian Biotechnology. The Act requires that approvals be obtained for the development, field testing and release of genetically modified organisms ("GMOs").

Since that article was written, the first public hearings of applications to field test genetically modified organisms in containment have been held before the Environmental Risk Management Authority ("ERMA") and decisions approving the applications have been made.
