 en Existing Biosafety Regulation in Kenya
Thitai, G.N.W.

Abstract

With biotechnology research and development activities rapidly expanding in Kenya, the country recognizes the need for national biosafety guidelines and regulations, Existing laws that govern general safety in agriculture and public health and welfare do not deal directly with biotechnology. The national Council for Science and Technology is therefore in the process of formulating national biosafety guidelines. The guidelines are intended to cover genetically engineered animals, plants and micro-organims; testing, production and release of genetically modified organism (GMOs); and risk assessment and safety measures.
