In May 2006, GMAC released the Singapore Biosafety Guidelines for Research on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). The Guidelines were adapted from other national and international guidelines, regulations and publications, after consultations with relevant local stakeholders such as researchers, biosafety officers, and the regulatory authorities.
In 1999, GMAC released the Singapore Biosafety Guidelines for Release of Agriculture-Related GMOs. The guidelines oversee the safe release of genetically modified plants, animals, microorganisms. GMAC also conducts Environmental Risk Assessment for the release of GMO related health products in Singapore.
GMAC through its Subcommittee for Public Awareness conducts regular outreach events to raise awareness and educate the public on GM issues in an objective, factual and scientific manner.
