Regulatory assessment

Technical report  “Regulatory Options for New Genomic Techniques in the European Union”Read More

In this document we have provided six options considering the potential regulatory design of such changes. These options also cover the widest spectrum of possibilities, ranging from working within the framework of the current legislation (Option 1) to streamlining NGT regulatory design with one of the other acts on risk regulation in the EU (Option 6). We included in the development of our six regulatory options for NGTs the following regulatory tools: (A) Authorisation; (B) Post-approval / Postmarket-requirements; (C) Labelling; (D) Traceability; (E) Implications as Incentives (EU / International / Liability / Economic Impact); and (F) Future Proof.
