Science & Biotechnology Law & Lawyers

A general description of biotechnology is using living things to create products or to do tasks for human beings.

If you have a legal matter regarding Science, Biotechnology & Gene Technology Law, please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Biotechnology is the practice of using plants, animals and micro-organisms such as bacteria, as well as biological processes - such as the ripening of fruit or the bacteria that break down compost - to some benefit.

For example, biotechnology is used in industry, medicine and agriculture to produce foods, medicines, test for diseases and remove waste.

It can also be used to solve problems and conduct research. Over time, biotechnology has formed the basis of learning about people and diseases. Biotechnology has also underpinned the development of treatments.

Biotechnology is the use of plants, animals and micro-organisms to create new products or processes. It includes using bacteria or enzymes to make industrial processes work more efficiently and create less pollution, or to clean up the environment.

Gene Technology

One kind of biotechnology is gene technology, sometimes called 'genetic engineering' or 'genetic modification', where the genetic material of living things is deliberately altered to enhance or remove a particular trait and allow the organism to perform new functions. Genes within a species can be modified, or genes can be moved from one species to another. In Australia, for example, gene technology has been used to make cotton plants resistant to pests without the use of chemicals, and to make a blue carnation for the floral industry.

While genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, often have demonstrated environmental benefits, such as significant reductions in pesticide use, they may also present potential risks to the environment.

Gene Technology Regulator

The Office of the Gene Technology Regulator has been established within the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing to provide administrative support to the Gene Technology Regulator in the performance of his functions under the Gene Technology Act 2000.

The Gene Technology Act 2000, which came into force on 21 June 2001, introduces a national scheme for the regulation of genetically modified organisms in Australia, in order to protect the health and safety of Australians and the Australian environment by identifying risks posed by or as a result of gene technology, and by managing those risks through regulating certain dealings with genetically modified organisms.

If you have a legal matter regarding Science, Biotechnology & Gene Technology Law, please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

National Regulatory Scheme for Genetically Modified Organisms

The nationally consistent legislative scheme for gene technology is comprised of the Commonwealth Gene Technology Act 2000 and Gene Technology Regulations 2001, and corresponding State and Territory legislation.

The legislation was developed in consultation with all Australian jurisdictions and the scheme is supported by the inter-governmental Gene Technology Agreement 2001 between the Australian Government and each State and Territory.

The Commonwealth Gene Technology legislation took effect on 21 June 2001 and consists of the following:

  • The Gene Technology Act 2000 (compilation incorporating amendments up to Act No. 58 of 2011)
  • The Gene Technology Regulations 2001 (compilation incorporating amendments up to SLI 2011 No. 73)

News, updates and further information - Science, Biotechnology & Gene Technology Law & Lawyers

Throughout 1999 and 2000 the State, Territory and Australian governments worked together with interested parties to develop the Gene Technology Act 2000.

The Act was passed by the Australian Government in December 2000 and took effect on 21 June 2001. It is the Australian Government's component of a national scheme for the regulation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It includes legislation in every Australian State and Territory.

The objective of the Act is to protect the health and safety of people and to protect the environment by identifying risks posed by or as a result of gene technology and by managing those risks. It does this by creating laws for certain dealings (or activities) with GMOs.

While most GM products are regulated by agencies such as the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) and the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA), GM products which were not already covered by an exisiting national regulation scheme are now regulated by the Gene Technology Regulator under the legislation.

Details about the regulatory framework for gene technology in Australia, including information on the Act, Regulations and the Gene Technology Ministerial Council, which oversees the operation of the national regulatory scheme for gene technology, can be found at the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator (OGTR).

A scientific, ethical and precautionary approach. The Act establishes three key advisory groups to provide advice, on request, to the Gene Technology Regulator and the Gene Technology Ministerial Council:

•the Gene Technology Technical Advisory Committee (GTTAC) provides advice on scientific and technical matters
•the Gene Technology Ethics Committee (GTEC) provides advice on ethical matters
•the Gene Technology Community Consultative Committee (GTCCC) provides advice on community issues regarding gene technology.
More information on the roles and memberships of these committees can be found at:
http://www.ogtr.gov.au/internet/ogtr/publishing.nsf/Content/committees-index-1
Section 4 requires that the object of the Act is to be achieved through a regulatory framework which:

(aa) provides that where there are threats of serious or irreversible environmental damage, a lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation

(a) provides an efficient and effective system for the application of gene technologies

(b) operates in conjunction with other Commonwealth and State regulatory schemes.

Section 4(aa) outlines a ‘precautionary approach’. This means that where there are threats of serious or irreversible environmental damage, a lack of full scientific certainty should not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation. However, the legislation also requires that the object of the Act is achieved by balancing a precautionary approach with the other two, equally important, provisions of efficiency/effectiveness and co-regulation.

A precautionary principle is, therefore, one of three 'pillars' in a regulatory framework for gene technology that seeks to protect human health and safety and the environment.

International arrangements

Working in international forums is one way Australia can encourage other countries to take up comprehensive arrangements to ensure the protection of people and the environment in the development of gene technology.

We need to ensure Australians and other nations act responsibly when exporting or transporting genetic material internationally. Likewise, we need to ensure that people importing or transporting genetic material across Australian boundaries act appropriately.

Convention on Biological Diversity

Australia is signatory to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and a member of the Intergovernmental Committee on the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (see http://www.dfat/gov.au/environment/bsp). In response to the CBD, an international biosafety protocol was negotiated and came into force on 11 September 2003. The protocol governs the ‘transboundary movement’ (i.e. movement across international borders) of living modified organisms resulting from modern biotechnology, which may have an adverse effect on the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.

You can find evidence about the safety of genetically modified products by examining the different regulatory arrangements around the world and the outcomes of other countries' research. While many countries are developing or have just established arrangements for regulating GMOs, some countries rely on self-regulation by industry and scientists. The Australian arrangements under the Gene Technology Act 2000 set an international benchmark for managing the risks associated with GMOs.

Ethics of biotechnology

Ethics are the rules or standards that govern the way people behave and their decisions on the 'right' thing to do. It asks basic questions about what is right and wrong, how we should act towards others and what we should do in specific situations.

It is important to note that ethics relating to biotechnology and its applications are not fundamentally different from other situations. Ethics are practiced by everyone, every day.

One common feature of ethics is that different people with different values often disagree on the ‘right thing’ for individuals and society. One reason for this disagreement is that one thing may benefit some people but not others.

An example is embryonic stem cell research. Some people see this as having great potential to develop cures for diseases. But, others object because it involves the destruction of human embryos that have the potential to become a human being.

There is no clear right or wrong position in ethics. A person’s individual experience and view of the world often guides the way they make ethical choices.

For instance, someone who has a strong environmental outlook might see the use of genetically modified (GM) crops as unnatural. But, someone who has a strong scientific-based view of the world might see the use of GM crops as a natural extension of traditional crop breeding technologies.

Commercial outcomes and ethics

Many new technologies raise ethical concerns that might not be part of the world view held by those who develop the technologies in the first place.

When it comes to developing products for commercial use, the goal is usually to increase sales and increase profits for shareholders. The decision for developing products can be seen as good for industry development, but perhaps not as good for individuals who do not have products developed to suit their needs when there is not enough company profit to be made.

Also, in some areas of biotechnology development, the money needed to fund research projects is out of the range of individuals or small groups; it can only be undertaken by multinational or overseas companies. Some perceive this as acceptable, because it helps local researchers form links with wealthy larger companies. But others do not think it is not acceptable, because local research and development leave the community and are then controlled by international corporations.

Many people believe that biotechnology products and applications should respond to and fulfil community needs. For example, some products may be of obvious social benefit (such as a drug that treats cancer), while others may be created by a business for attractive advertising and skilful marketing (for example, unusual-coloured flowers for the floral industry, or fluorescent fish for the pet industry).

In a world with decreasing resources, where many people go hungry, is spending research dollars on developing a fluorescent fish acceptable or not? Your answer will differ depending on your world view. The ‘right thing’ for one person may not be right for others. It can be very difficult to balance these conflicting views.

There are particular ethical positions that are commonly shared. One of these is the view that all biotechnology products must be safe for humans and the environment. This is why Australia has developed a sound regulatory system. But, other ethical positions are diverse, such as an individual’s rights to do what they want with their body.

Potatoes with great potential for added value

Thu, 25 May 2017 07:36:07 EDT

The potato is not only a basic food item and one of the main food crops worldwide, it contains a huge variety of minerals and phytochemicals with potentially health-promoting effects. Greater awareness about the importance of consuming these phytochemicals (substances that help to protect cells against the harm caused by carcinogenic processes) and the growing interest in the development of new products with specific organoleptic properties, have led to the appearance of different initiatives to genetically enhance the potato. Clones have been identified with a soft consistency, total disintegration when boiled, low humidity and high "flouriness" and which can be used for preparing mashed or roast potatoes.

Fine-tuning 'dosage' of mutant genes unleashes long-trapped yield potential in tomato plants

Thu, 18 May 2017 12:00:06 EDT

Breeding in plants and animals typically involves straightforward addition. As beneficial new traits are discovered—like resistance to drought or larger fruits—they are added to existing prized varieties, delivered via cross-breeding. But every once in a while, adding a beneficial new trait can result in a net subtraction, due to processes deeply hidden within the interactions of genes underlying existing and newly added traits.

Potatoes with great potential for added value

Thu, 25 May 2017 07:36:07 EDT

The potato is not only a basic food item and one of the main food crops worldwide, it contains a huge variety of minerals and phytochemicals with potentially health-promoting effects. Greater awareness about the importance of consuming these phytochemicals (substances that help to protect cells against the harm caused by carcinogenic processes) and the growing interest in the development of new products with specific organoleptic properties, have led to the appearance of different initiatives to genetically enhance the potato. Clones have been identified with a soft consistency, total disintegration when boiled, low humidity and high "flouriness" and which can be used for preparing mashed or roast potatoes.

Fine-tuning 'dosage' of mutant genes unleashes long-trapped yield potential in tomato plants

Thu, 18 May 2017 12:00:06 EDT

Breeding in plants and animals typically involves straightforward addition. As beneficial new traits are discovered—like resistance to drought or larger fruits—they are added to existing prized varieties, delivered via cross-breeding. But every once in a while, adding a beneficial new trait can result in a net subtraction, due to processes deeply hidden within the interactions of genes underlying existing and newly added traits.
