Deliberate release of Genetically Modified Micro-organisms into the environment

The Environmental Protection Agency is Ireland’s competent authority under Directive 2001/18/EC on the deliberate release of genetically modified organisms into the environment. Detailed procedures concerning the authorisation process are set out in Directive 2001/18/EC and the Genetically Modified Organisms (Deliberate Release) Regulations 2003 (S.I. No. 500 of 2003).
Two types of deliberate release are covered by the GMO (Deliberate Release) Regulations 2003.
1. Deliberate release of GMOs for purposes other than for placing on the market. (e.g. research, field trials)
2. Placing on the market of GMOs as or in products.
Applications to release a GMO into the environment for research and development purposes are considered by the EPA. Such a release may only proceed with the prior agreement of the EPA and in conformance with any conditions imposed by the EPA.
Authorisation for the placing of a GMO product on the market is issued at European level. A person or organisation proposing to place a product containing or consisting of a GMO on the market under Directive 2001/18/EC, using the Irish Competent authority (EPA) as lead or evaluating Competent Authority, should contact the EPA to arrange pre-application discussions.
The details are set out in the Genetically Modified Organisms (Deliberate Release) Regulations 2003 (S.I. No. 500 of 2003).
The Regulations are available at http://www.irishstatutebook.
