In Decision CP-9/11, the Executive Secretary was requested to review and finalize the manual on detection and identification of living modified organisms (LMOs), ensuring consistency and language in scope with Article 17 of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety.
In response to this decision, the Secretariat announced the publication of the Training Manual on the Detection and Identification of LMOs as Biosafety Technical Series 05. The publication was launched at a global webinar held on 25 April 2022.
The webinar took place virtually using the GoToWebinar platform and was held in English only.
