Kenya to issue GMO sale guidelines

The Kenyan government is to publish guidelines on the sale and use of genetically modified crops within two months, national newspaper Daily Nation reports. Regulations have been delayed because of indecision on labelling of GM products and on application fees, the newspaper reports. Biosafety regulations were due to be issued last year ( Agrow No 597, p 24). The Biosafety Act was passed in February 2009 ( Agrow No 562, p 17), but the law requires guidelines for the commercial approval of GMOs. National Biosafety Authority acting chief executive Roy Mugiira told Daily Nation that the Authority had not authorised the import of any GMOs for trials, but that many applications had been received.
