  1. It is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator (PI) to undertake a risk assessment in relation to any genetic modification work they, or members of their research group, undertake.
  2. The risk assessment must be undertaken and be reviewed and approved by the local GM Safety Committee in advance of work starting. A risk assessment is required for any activity involving genetically modified organisms, including storage, irrespective of where the GMO was originally made.

There are 2 forms for risk assessments.

  1. The full risk assessment is required for new activities, for which no previous risk assessment has been submitted
  2. A risk assessment for a previously approved GM project, for example with new personnel, or minor modifications
