Gene Technology at UNSW

This website outlines the requirements and processes associated with conducting gene technology research at UNSW.

Research Ethics and Compliance Support (RECS) co-ordinates gene technology compliance at UNSW in conjunction with the Gene Technology Research Committee (GTRC). The GTRC provides advice on risks related to the gene technology work within the University including assessment and review of all dealings involving GMOs at UNSW.

From the 1st of August, 2015, following approval of the new Gene Technology Research Procedure:

    • The Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) has been renamed the Gene Technology Research Committee (GTRC)
    • Responsibilities for SSBAs and Class 3 and 4 Risk Organisms have been removed from the GTRC terms of reference and replaced with alternative paths (these will be outlined on our website soon.)
    • The application process for Exempt Dealings has changed to a Notification process only
