Submissions invited for GMO Moratorium Review

Successive Tasmanian governments have, since 2001, maintained a moratorium on the commercial release of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) into the Tasmanian environment. The current moratorium expires on 16 November 2019.

The Tasmanian Government has released an Issues Paper to frame a review of the moratorium, and is now seeking submissions from the community.

Information on the GMO Moratorium Review and how to make a submission can be found on the DPIPWE website at www.dpipwe.tas.gov.au. The closing date for submissions is 26 April 2019.

For enquiries concerning the review, please contact AgriGrowth Tasmania using the dedicated email address: GMOMoratoriumReview@dpipwe.tas.gov.au
