The CEPA Action plan aims to:
• Participation of civil society (including representatives of consumer protection) in the work of the National Committee as needed - to regulate biosafety in the handling of GM products.
• Supporting and sensitizing civil society to participate by giving them the right to report any violations and to follow the movement of related products in the open environment.
• Support the National Biosafety Committee in initiatives to hold hearings in cases it deems necessary before making a decision.
The CEPA Action Plan for Information Communication Mechanisms is the starting point for public participation in biosafety activities in Egypt. The plan consists of six main themes as follows:
1. Introduction to all topics related to biosafety and genetic engineering
2. The importance of information communication - education and public awareness in issues of genetically engineered products
3. Key elements of a CEPA program on biosafety
4. Methodological foundations of the CEPA program
5. Program elements in the biosafety project in Egypt
