Genetic engineering

What regulations do I need to follow?

Work involving the production of genetically modified organisms, or work with such organisms, may only be conducted in government-certified genetic engineering facilities. Even the storage of genetically modified organisms falls within the scope of the German Genetic Engineering Act.

Where can I get help and more information?

Contact the Biological Safety Officer, who can help you to comply with and implement regulations, or to contact the relevant government authorities.
