Organization’s profile
The International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) is an intergovernmental organization in the United Nations System. In 1997, ICGEB established its Biosafety Group to act as a scientific reference point for its Member States that have ratified the Convention on Biological Diversity and, in particular, the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety concerning the transboundary movement of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The role of the ICGEB Biosafety Group is principally to assist countries in their capacity to identify, regulate, manage and monitor products derived from modern biotechnology within their jurisdiction. Activities focus on directly supporting the establishment of national biosafety regulatory systems and offices, and assisting the development and execution of essential administrative and technical procedures.
