Techniques for genetic modification, cf. § § 1 and 4
Within the framework of the definition of genetically modified organisms in section 4, genetic modification occurs at least by the use of the following techniques :
1) Combinant nucleic techniques, which include the formation of new combinations of genetic material by the introduction of nucleic coasts produced in any way outside of an organism, in a virus, bacterial placards or other the vector system and their incorporation into a host body in which they do not occur naturally, but in which they are capable of continuing propagation.
2) Technical techniques for direct entry into an organism of genetic material that has been prepared outside the organism, including microinjection, macro injection and microencapsulation.
3) Cell merger (including protoplagers) or hybridization techniques, where live cells with new combinations of genetic material are formed by fusion of two or more cells by means of methods that do not occur naturally.
The following techniques are not considered to be a leading to genetic modification, insofar as they do not involve the use of combinant nucleic acid molecules or genetically modified organisms :
1) In vitro fertilization,
2) natural processes, such as conjugation, transduction, transformation, and
The notice shall not apply to organisms manufactured using the following genetic modification techniques, provided that they do not involve the use of genetically modified organisms, such as recipient or parenogenic organisms :
2) cell fusion (including protoplagers) of prokaryote species which exchange genetic material at known physiological processes ;
3) cell fusion (including protoplafusion) of cells from all of the eeukaryote species, including the production of hybrids and plant-plant-plant mergers, and
4) traditional processing techniques.
Notification and classification of laboratories, laboratory areas, storm-scale experiments and production, cf. Section 7 (2). 1
The classification shall be carried out in 4 classes in relation to :
1) the direction of the area,
2) plans for the execution of the work, including contingency plans,
3) the technical means of the area ; and
4) internal supervision and control.
Notification of classification :
Information required for the purpose of the section in section 7 (3). 1 declaration of notification :
-WHAT? the name of user / users and persons responsible for the supervision and security ;
-WHAT? information on training and qualifications in respect of persons responsible for the supervision and security ;
-WHAT? security organization information
-WHAT? the address and general description of the buildings ;
-WHAT? a description of the nature of the work which will be carried out ;
-WHAT? the class of enclosed use,
-WHAT? information on the management of waste.
-WHAT? any contingency plans,
Schema 1a, 1b, 1c, and 2 show the normal minimum requirements and measures necessary for each containment level.
The end is also guaranteed by the use of good working practices, training, containment equipment and, in particular, civil engineering design. For all activities involving genetically modified micro-organisms, the principles of good microbiological practices and the following principles of safety and hygiene in the workplace are :
i) the protective measures and the protective equipment shall be reviewed in an appropriate manner and maintained ;
(ii) to be tested, as necessary, for the presence of viable organisms from the outside of the primary physical containment ;
(iii) the staff shall be provided for the appropriate training of staff,
(iv) drawing up and implementing local guidelines as required for the safety of staff ;
(v) a suitable registration must be carried out,
We) in the interests of security, written working instructions shall be drawn up as required.
The Skemations ' headlines are indicative.
Table 1a indicates the minimum requirements for laboratories and laboratory areas in which genetically modified organisms are worked.
Table 1b lists additions to and changes to Schema 1a for greenhouse gases and similar ones where genetically modified micro-organisms are worked.
Table 1c lists additions to and changes to the schema 1a of animal stables and similar where genetically modified micro-organisms are worked.
Table 2 shows the minimum requirements for large-scale scale-scale experiments and production where genetically modified organisms are worked.
In some cases, it may be necessary to use a combination of measures from schema 1a and schema 2 at the same level.
In some cases, the user may not use a specification from a given containment-level or combining specifications from two different levels.
In the Schema, the "optionally" means that the user may carry out these measures on the basis of the evaluation in section 6 in each case. The Board of Work may, by means of a concrete assessment, make demands that the measures set out in the Schema as "possible" should be used.
For autoclapping, a saturated water vapour treatment is understood by 121 ºC for 20 minutes or other combinations of temperature and time, having at least the same inactivation power on biological material.
In the case of disinfection, a reduction in the number of harmful micro-organisms in such a degree means that the spread of safety or health implications will not occur. Disinfection is mostly carried out by heat exposure or chemical exposure.
Contain and other safeguard measures for laboratories and laboratory areas, cf. § 3 and § 8.
In this Annex, both ' laboratory ` and ' laboratory territory ` shall be referred to as a laboratory.
The requirements of categories 2, 3 and 4 shall, in addition to the requirements referred to in the current class, also include the requirements referred to in the previous classes. For the classification of a class 3 or 4 laboratory, in addition to the general requirements set out in the Annex, specific requirements may be made subject to the specific project to be carried out in the laboratory.
A horizontal line means that the lower class requirement should not be transferred to the higher class, as it would be contrary to other requirements of this class.
Schema 1a. Laboratory and other safeguard measures for laboratories and laboratories.
Table 1b. Confining and other protective measures for greenhouses and similar
The printing houses and similar references are to a structure with walls, a roof and a floor that is designed and essentially used for the propulsion of plants in a controlled and protected environment.
All provisions of the Schema 1a are applicable with the following additions / changes :
Schema 1c. Indexing and other protective measures for animal stalkers and similar.
All provisions of the Schema 1a are applicable with the following additions / changes :
Confining and other protective measures for large-scale scale trials and production, cf. § 9
The notification shall, where necessary, contain information on the protective measures planned for the protection against the risks associated with the use of the installation, including ;
-WHAT? the expected cultural volume,
-WHAT? the quantities, nature and consumption of raw materials, formulants, etc., to be used ;
-WHAT? the processes used, including the formation of between-and waste products, as well as by-products of safety and health care ;
-WHAT? the projected emissions at the workplace from installations and equipment of gaseous, liquid and solid substances and materials in connection with operations and accidents.
The requirements for the containment measures for organisms are shown in the categories listed below, depending on the organism concerned and the work concerned.
Each operation in the process must be assessed. Each operations characteristic is essential to the physical containment to be used. This will make it possible to select and organise the process and the plant and operational procedures which are best suited to ensuring adequate and secure containment. Two important factors which must be taken into account in the selection of containment equipment are the risk and the impact of failure of the equipment used. The more serious the consequences of a possible failure are, after all, the stricter requirements for manufacturing practices to be put in order to reduce the risk of failure.
Evaluation after section 6 of the biological systems
This Annex contains a general description of the elements to be taken into account and the procedure to be followed in the assessment referred to in this Annex. The F.s.v.Amongst the detailed guidelines for the assessment are referred to Annex 3b.
The assessment shall take particular account of the issue of the release of waste and waste water.
A. Items for the Assessment referred to in section 6 :
1. The following should be considered to be potentially harmful effects :
-WHAT? disease in humans, including allergenic or toxic effects ;
-WHAT? disease in animals and plants ;
-WHAT? harmful effects caused by the impossibility of treating a disease or to offer an efficient prophylax ;
-WHAT? adverse effects resulting from the establishment in or diversification into the environment ;
-WHAT? harmful effects resulting from the natural transfer of inmate genetic material to other organisms.
2. in assessing possible hazards for safety and health at the biological systems, the following parameters must be taken into consideration in the extent that they are relevant :
a) Identification of all potentially harmful effects, especially those related to
i) donor, host, or (if any) the parental (s) organism (s) (as long as the organism is used in the activity)
(ii) the inserted genetic material (from the donor organism),
(iv) the resulting genetically modified organism.
b) The characteristic properties of the activity.
c) The extent of the potentially harmful effects, including the health of the health.
d) The probability that the potentially harmful effects occur.
(e) Surveillance techniques.
3. The first phase of the evaluation process should be to identify harmful properties in the recipient organism and, where appropriate, in the donor organism and harmful properties associated with the vector or the inserted material, including any modification of the phase ; The existing properties of the recipient.
In general, it is only genetically modified organisms with the following characteristics, which will be considered suitable for the inclusion in class 1 :
i) Recipientorganism or the parenous organism is expected not to be able to cause diseases in humans, animals or plants ; 6)
(ii) the vector or the inserted material is of such a kind, that they do not give the genetically modified organism a faecal type which is expected to cause diseases in humans, animals and plants ; 6) or to have environmentally harmful effects ;
(iii) the genetically modified organism is expected not to be able to provoke diseases in humans, animals and plants ; 6) , and are not expected to have environmentally harmful effects.
In order to obtain knowledge of the information necessary for the implementation of this process, the notifier shall not be able to include relevant legislation, in particular the Agency ' s notice on biological agents and the working environment.
International or national classification systems (e.g. WHO, NIH), and their adaptations to scientific and technical progress may also be taken into account.
6. The fortification process to be carried out in accordance with section 3-5 shall lead to the identification of the degree of risk associated with the genetically modified organisms.
7. The selection of the containment and other protective measures shall then be taken on the basis of the level of risk associated with genetically modified organisms, as well as in the light of :
i) characteristic properties of the environment likely to be exposed (for example, in the environment likely to be subjected to genetically modified organisms, known biota, which may be adversely affected by the organisms used in the activity which has been involved in the enclosed application,
(ii) characteristic characteristics of the activity (such as its scope and species) ;
(iii) all non-standard operations (e.g., non-cogeneration of genetically modified micro-organisms in animals ; equipment likely causing aerosol formation).
On the grounds of paragraph 1 In accordance with point 6, the degree of risk that the genetically modified organism may be associated with the genetically modified organism may be increased or remain unchanged under point 6.
8. When the analysis is complete as described above, the activity is classified in one of the classes described below. The 4-class division shall not apply to genetically modified animals and plants.
9. The final classification of the enclosed use shall be verified following a review of the completed assessment as referred to in section 6.
Criteria for the selection of class.
The assessment in Annex 3a, Part A, shall result in a final classification of the enclosed uses in four classes, and this classification is in accordance with section 6 (4). 2 determinant of the containment level :
Class 1 : work which does not present any risk or only insignificant risk, i.e. work where the class 1 containment is sufficient to protect human health and the environment.
Class 2 : work which involves low risk, i.e. work where the class 2 containment is sufficient to protect human health and the environment.
Class 3 : work that involves moderate risk, i.e. work where the class 3 containment is sufficient to protect human health and the environment.
Group 4 : work that involves high risk, that is to say. work where class 4-containment is sufficient to protect human health and the environment.
Guidelines for risk assessment
The elements to be taken into consideration in Annex 3a, part A, points 1 and 2 shall be drawn up in the assessment of potentially harmful effects on human health and the environment. Potential harmful effects are defined as : effects resulting from disease or the impact of prophylax or processing ineffective ; harmful effects on organisms or natural populations resulting from the establishment and / or dissipation of the environment ; or harmful effects resulting from retransmission to other organisms. The risk of these potentially harmful effects must be examined for each operation, which shall be classified in a given class, taking into account the nature and scope of the operation in order to determine the necessary containment measures. The risk of the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the construction of such organisms shall be determined by examining the seriousness of the potential harmful effects on health or environmental effects, and of the likelihood ; for these effects to take place. In the case of risk assessment, the exposure of humans or the environment to GMOs shall be assessed as a result of the operation of a plant for contained use or as a result of possible leakage from one such plant. The level of classification determined by the risk assessment determines which account requirements are in force for activities involving GMOs.
2. Risk Assessment
A complete risk assessment process includes the following two procedures :

3.3 Tentative classification of the GMO
In Annex 3a, part A, point 3-5, it is stated that the first stage of the risk assessment of a GMO is to identify the potential harmful characteristics of the GMO so that a provisional classification can be made for a provisional classification. This is done by identifying the hazards that may be associated with the recipient of recipient cod, donor organism, vector and insert. The evaluation may take into account the general characteristics of Class 1, as described in Annex 3a, part A, point 4, and appropriate up to date national and international classification schemes (including the notice of biological agents and work environment and changes thereto). The corresponding set of the containment and other protective measures referred to in Annex 2 serves as a basis for assessing whether stricter containment and control measures are required to check the harmful effects of the impending.
The risk of harmful effects resulting from any harmful characteristics of the GMO shall be assessed by examining the seriousness of the damage and any biological properties (e.g. inactivation mutations) which limit the probability of entry ; damage. The seriousness of the harmful effects is assessed independently of the likelihood of their actual entry. The seriousness of any damage shall be assessed by examining the impact of the consequences thereof and not the likelihood of the injury to be taken in the case in question. For example, for a pathogen, it has to be assessed how serious the disease would be if a sensitive species is infected. In the case of the placement of a GMO in a provisional class, the seriousness of the damage shall also be taken into account. In the various classification schemes, such as the publication of biological agents and the working environment, the seriousness of the damage is due to the seriousness of the damage. However, many of these systems are based only on either health or environmental considerations. It is important to ensure that the seriousness of the harmful health and environmental impact of the GMO in question is fully taken into account.
3.4 Evaluation of the probability of harmful effects.
The likelihood of the occurrence of a harmful event depends first and foremost on the level and nature of the exposure of human or environmental exposure to a given GMO. The exposure aspect is, in most cases, of primary importance for the risk assessment, since it is often the case that it is crucial to whether a harmful effect will be taken. The likelihood of the human or environment being exposed to a GMO depends on the operations carried out (e.g. and on what scale) and what containment measures have been taken on the basis of the provisional classification in : in accordance with paragraphs 5 and 6.
Purset to paragraph 7 (no. (ii) and (iii) of Annex 3a, the definitive classification and choice of controls shall be taken into account in the operation of the characteristic characteristics and controls. The nature and extent of the activity shall be taken into account in order to assess the likelihood of exposure to human and environmental exposure, and this will also have implications for the choice of appropriate risk management procedures.
The characteristics of the operation, which may be of relevance to the risk assessment and which must therefore be taken into account, may refer to the activity itself, working routines, the extent of activity and of the containment measures used.
The evaluation shall take into account, in particular, of how waste and waste water are intended to be disposed of. Where appropriate, safety measures shall be taken to protect health and the environment.
3.4.1. The nature of the activities envisaged.
The level of risk and application of control measures to reduce this risk from the GMO to an appropriate level depend on the nature of the activities, since these will have an impact on the exposure of people and the environment and, therefore, to the likelihood of the environment ; for harmful effects.
The nature of the work will also determine the form in Annex 2 which contains the most appropriate containment and control measures.
In the case of work in laboratory escalation where the effects of the standard laboratory procedures on exposure are well known, a detailed risk assessment of each procedure will not be necessary unless a very dangerous organism is used. However, a more detailed assessment may be necessary for non-routine procedures or procedures which may have significant impact on the level of risk, such as procedures, resulting in aerosols.
3.4.2 Concentration and Scope
Large cell density may result in exposure to large concentrations of the GMO, in particular in downstream processing operations. The significance of the concentration on the likelihood of a harmful event is to be investigated.
The extent of an activity must also be taken into consideration at risk assessment, both the extent of a single operation, or in the form of frequent repetition of a process, because both may result in an exposure to the end-of-and-and-the-ending basis ; the control measures are failing and thus increase the likelihood of a harmful event.
Although operations of a large scale do not necessarily mean considerable risk, greater exposure may lead to exposure both as regards the number of people and the extent of the exposure of the environment in the event of failure in the containment measures.
The extent of the work will also be of relevance to the extent to which the scheme in Annex 2, which contains the most appropriate containment and control measures, will also be relevant.
3.4.3 Check-out conditions
For many activities with the enclosed application, the cultivation of animals is subject to strict containment conditions, but also the design and the nature of the reactors and other cultivated equipment will be of relevance to the health and environmental risks. Exposure to and thus the risk of a GMO can be significantly reduced by means of high-tech and close-closed ginger-barking. It is important to examine the reliability of this equipment and the possibility of operating disturbances where operational disturbances may result in large-scale exposure to harmful GMOs. Where such discharges are reasonably foreseeable, additional containment measures may be required. The standard working routines of persons working with cultivated GMOs, such as centrifugation or sonification, are of great importance to the effectiveness of the containment measures.
In addition to the physical cultivation conditions which act as a containment measures, biological and chemical measures which serve to protect the operation may contribute significantly to the containment measures. For example, by way of biological inference, auxotrophic mutants can be mentioned, which require the supply of specific growth factors in order to develop. Like chemical containment measures, disinfectants may be mentioned in the wiring systems.
In point 7 of Annex 3a, it states that assessing the likelihood of harmful effects and of their seriousness must be taken into account in the characteristics of the environment which could be exposed and to the effects of the effects, For real.
Certain aspects of these environmental considerations are important, such as the extent and the nature of the exposure of the environment and to the extent to which the presence of biota may be damaged by the GMO in the exposed area.
The following factors should, if necessary, be taken into account when evaluating the characteristics of the recipient environment will have the likelihood of the potential harmful effects of potentially harmful effects and, therefore, on the level of risk and the choice of : control measures.
220.127.116.11 The environment that will be exposed
The environment likely to be exposed may, in the majority of cases, be expected to be limited to the workplace and the area immediately around the plant, but, depending on the specific features of the enclosed use and plant, it is also necessary to : take account of the environment in further importance. The scope of the environmental exposure may depend on the nature and extent of the activity, but any conceivable form of transfer in the wider environment, such as a sewer, water, waste disposal, wind and biological vectors (such as through infected animals, and insects shall be taken into account.
18.104.22.168 The presence of sensitive species
The likelihood of damaging effects will depend on the availability of sensitive species, including humans, animals and plants, in the environment which may be exposed in the environment which may be exposed.
22.214.171.124 The possibility of the environment being able to promote the survival of GMOs
One important aspect of the risk assessment is the question of how wide the GMO can be able to survive and persistfully in the environment. The likelihood of harmful effects will be much less if a GMO cannot survive in the environment in which it will be able to escape.
126.96.36.199 Effects on the physical environment
In addition to the direct detrimental effects of a GMO, the adverse effects of indirect adverse effects resulting from significant changes in the physico-chemical properties of and / or the ecological balance in the environmental media soil and water are also taken into account.
4. Procedure 2
4.1 Determination of final classification and final containment measures. When the seriousness of all potentially harmful characteristics of the GMO and the likelihood of damage resulting from it has been examined taking into account the end-end and control arrangements that the provisional classification entails, the final classification of the product may be : the classification and final containment measures for the GMO shall be fixed. In the assessment of the final classification and final containment measures, the provisional classification should be reviewed to see whether it was properly taking into account the activities envisaged and operations. A comparison between the provisional classification and the associated containment measures with the final class and the associated containment requirements may result in three outcomes :
-WHAT? Whereas the provisional classification has not taken due account of certain harmful effects, so the provisional containment under procedure 1 is insufficient ; therefore, further containment measures are required, and the classification of the activity in question may be subject to revision ;
-WHAT? Whereas the provisional classification was appropriate and the related intake measures to prevent or minimise health and environmental damage ;
-WHAT? the provisional classification is more stringent than necessary for the activity, and therefore a lower classification should be chosen with the associated containment measures.
4.2 Confirmation of the appropriateness of final containment measures.
When the final classification and final containment conditions are laid down, the level of exposure of human and environmental exposure should be re-evaluated (procedure 1). In this respect, it must be confirmed that the likelihood of harmful effects is acceptable, taking into account the nature and extent of the work and the proposed containment conditions. Once this is done, the risk assessment process is complete.
in section 6 (4). 5, it states that the assessment must be updated when changes are made to work, working methods, work processes, etc., which are relevant to the business environment of the establishment and the external environment, if :
1) the protective measures which are used are no longer adequate or the class in which the activity is carried out is no longer the correct one ; or
2) there is reason to assume that the evaluation will no longer be adequate on the basis of the latest scientific or technical knowledge.
Any changes to the containment conditions as a result of the review of the risk assessment shall be implemented without delay in the interests of adequate protection of health and the environment.
The enclosed applications are classified in Class 1-4 on the basis of the classification and the containment and control measures that are required for the risk assessment to be sufficient for the sufficient containment of the GMO in connection with the intended activities. In Annex 2, the end-use and control measures for each class shall be described.
The administrative requirements shall be determined on the basis of the classification of the contained applications of GMO.
If there is uncertainty regarding the final classification and the final containment conditions, the Board of Director should be contacted.
