Manual on Risk Assessment of LMOs

The Manual on Risk Assessment of LMOs is available online or for download in the six UN official languages (as MS Word: Ar | En | Es | Fr | Ru | Zh; or Adobe PDF: Ar | En | Es | Fr | Ru | Zh).

Acknowledgement: The translation of the Manual on Risk Assessment of LMOs from English to all UN official languages was made possible through the financial contribution received from the European Union under a ENRTP Strategic Cooperation Agreements project.

Graphic Package Aligning the "Roadmap" and the "Manual"

In decision BS-VI/12, the COP-MOP mandated the Online Forum and the AHTEG on Risk Assessment and Risk Management to develop "package that aligns the Guidance on Risk Assessment of Living Modified Organisms (e.g. the Roadmap) with the training manual "Risk Assessment of Living Modified Organisms" in a coherent and complementary manner". After several rounds of online discussion on this topic, a graphic alignment between the Roadmap and Manual was produced:

At its face-to-face meeting, the AHTEG will consider and improve the graphic alignment for submission to the COP-MOP at its seventh meeting.

E-learning on Risk Assessment of LMOs

In paragraph 9(d) of decision BS-V/12, the COP-MOP requested the Executive Secretary to "an interactive learning tool based on the training manual, and make it available through the Biosafety Clearing-House in all United Nations languages with the view to developing a more cost-effective way for delivering training on risk assessment". In working towards that request, the Secretariat has developed an initial concept of an e-training tool based on the Manual (available here).

The final e-training tool will be developed once the AHTEG has completed the revision of the Guidance on Risk Assessment of LMOs.
