Opening of the discussion [#7196]
Dear members of the AHTEG Sub-group,

Thank you for the useful discussion we had earlier today during our teleconference in preparation for the discussion of the Sub-group during 25 May and 22 June 2015.

Please see below the main points that were discussed and agreed upon with regard to the current discussion of the Sub-group.

OBJECTIVE OF THE DISCUSSION: Streamline the suggestions for changes provided through the testing of the Guidance focusing on the 10 identified thematic areas (“sub-categories”) under the categories D and E of the grouped comments provided through the testing of the Guidance plus one general sub-category for "other" topics. The sub-categories include: “Audience”, “Scope”, “Relevancy of points to consider”, “Link between steps or sections (of the Guidance)”, “Language”, “Experience with LMOs & conventional practices”, “Actors and communication mechanisms”, “Consistency with the Cartagena Protocol”, “Concrete examples”, “Human health” and “others”.

WORK METHOD: Members of the Sub-group will identify the challenges under each sub-category and propose ways forward. To facilitate the task, members of the Sub-group will use the template provided by the Secretariat (available as a background document)

ORGANIZATION OF WORK:  The Sub-group will focus on the comments/suggestions in:

- Category D during the first 2 weeks of the discussion (25 May – 7 June)
- Category E during the last 2 weeks of the discussion (8 – 22 June)

BACKGROUND DOCUMENTS: The following documents are available in the page of the discussion at https://bch.cbd.int/onlineconferences/RA_ahteg_subgroup/ :

- Category D comments with sub-categories (in Excel format)
- Template for streamlining suggestions for changes (to be used by the AHTEG Sub-group) (in Word format)
- Guidance on Risk Assessment of LMOs (for reference) (in Word format)
- Category D comments with sub-categories (in Excel format) -> this document will be available in the coming days

TAKING STOCK: Another teleconference of the Sub-group is tentatively scheduled to take place on 3 June 2015. A confirmation and the tentative agenda will be sent out in due course.

Please note that this discussion is being open slightly ahead of the scheduled time in order to provide the Sub-group with more time, if needed, to conduct its tasks.

Members of the Sub-group are encouraged to consult among themselves and/or with the Secretariat on a regular and informal basis.

I thank all members of the AHTEG Sub-group for your dedication and the excellent work you have been doing in revising the Guidance as per the COP-MOP decision.

Best regards,
Manoela
