IBC (INSTITUTIONAL BIOSAFETY COMMITEE)




"Malaysia ratified the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety in September 2003. In 2007, a Biosafety Act was approved to regulate the release, importation and contained use of living modified organisms (LMOs) and the products of such organisms. The Biosafety Act 2007 (the Act) is drafted to be in line with the National Biological Diversity Policy (1998) and the National Biotechnology Policy (2005) and covers only modern biotechnology activities. This Act will ensure the potential adverse impact of modern biotechnology is minimized and managed in a manner that does not have a negative impact on biodiversity and human health. The Act is an enabling law where most of the operational issues will be spelt out within the regulations. After series of negotiations with stakeholders, the Act entered into force on 1 December 2009. This was later followed by the entry into force of the Biosafety (Approval and Notifications) Regulations in November 2010. With this User’s Guide, it is hoped that any organisation that conduct work with LMOs will understand and comply with the requirements of the new regulatory system for LMOs"
