Global Industry Coalition Views on the SBSTTA Debate

The Global Industry Coalition (GIC) continues to have significant concerns with the ongoing negotiations on risk assessment and risk management of LMOs under the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, in particular, how gaps in existing guidance are identified and selected for further consideration in the absence of consensus by the Parties that such work is justified. Parties to the Protocol will consider proposed recommendations for a path forward on risk assessment during the 22nd meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Affairs (SBSTTA), taking place 2-7 July 2018 in Montreal, Canada.  The proposed recommendations continue the inefficient and unproductive work that has occurred on this issue since 2004, using the same mechanisms that have not led to beneficial outcomes for the Parties.  The GIC is firmly of the view that the SBSTTA should discontinue this repetitious work.  SBSTTA is instead requested to recommend work on developing objective and agreed-upon criteria to determine whether further work on risk assessment is warranted. An appropriate mechanism for this activity is an online forum that would allow for the participation of a wide spectrum of experts to engage and support outcomes fully-informed by appropriate expertise.
