Kenyan biosafety rules coming into force

Kenya is to implement biosafety regulations in the next month, the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation reports. Biosafety regulations will be issued in the official gazette by August, it says. The move will “allow the country to … tap into the potential of agricultural biotechnology”. It reports comments of the National Biosafety Authority (NBA) chief executive Harrison Macharia at an East African regional workshop in Nairobi. “The regulations will be in the public domain and whoever wants to transact business will abide by the regulations,” he said. The country’s Biosafety Act was passed last year ( Agrow No 562, p 17). A key provision was fulfilled earlier this year, when the Minister of Science and Technology appointed the NBA’s board ( Agrow No 593, p 21).
