Danish Biosafety Clearing House

Introduction

Denmark ratified the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety on 27 August 2002.

The Protocol seeks to contribute to ensuring an adequate level of protection in the field of the safe transfer, handling and use of living modified organisms (LMOs), that is organisms resulting from modern biotechnology. In principle such LMOs correspond to living, genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

By ratifying the Protocol, Denmark has, among other things, committed itself to ensuring exchange of information about genetically modified organisms as well as the regulation thereof through a Danish Biosafety Clearing House.
