The Department of Biodiversity Conservation of the Vietnam Environment Administration (VEA) organized a seminar to introduce Circular No.08/2013/TT-BTNMT dated May, 2013 on June 21, 2013 in Hanoi. The Circular came into force on July 1, 2013 and stipulates the order and procedures to grant and revoke the certificate of biological safety for genetically modified crops.

 

Speaking at the workshop, Mrs. Hoang Thi Thanh Nhan, Deputy Director of the Department of Biodiversity Conservation said that in line with the policy of stimulating biotechnology application, especially in agriculture, the Party and the Government has issued guidelines and policies and many legal documents. These include the Environment Protection Law (2005), Biodiversity Act (2008), Law on Food Safety (2010), Decree 69/2010/ND-CP and Decree 108/2011/ND-CP, which will ensure the application of biotechnology with safety to the environment, biodiversity and human health.
