All institutions that use genetically modified organisms are obliged to monitor the contained use (https://lovdata.no/forskrift/2001-12-21-1600/§16). It has been a long time since this was implemented. K2 will therefore have a review with all research groups that have conducted GMO trials/work in 2022 and 2023. The focus will be on containment measures and other protective measures such as safety routines and waste management, in addition to the registration protocol and lab journals. Before the review, we will request that risk assessments and work procedures be sent to HSE coordinator Siv Lise Bedringaas (Siv.Bedringaas@uib.no).
Research groups to which this applies can use this link, Please book time using name and research group: https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/bqZBOjDd Please contact us if none of the times are suitable.
The inspection will be carried out by HSE coordinator Siv Lise Bedringaas and the safety delegate service.
