Peru commission mulls biosafety law

Peru has set up a multi-sector commission to evaluate the recently approved biosafety law. The country approved Decree 003/2011 in April, authorising regulations for the development of activities with living modified organisms ( Agrow No 616, p 21). The commission is due to end a review of the new regulation and the various reactions to it later this month, newswire SciDev reports. However, conflict has arisen over the composition of the commission and its powers. Ilko Rogovich of the environmentalist lawyers’ association, the SPDA, says that the commission is only empowered to make recommendations to the agrarian sector. The commission has two members of the Ministry of Agriculture, and one each from the Ministries of the Environment, Foreign Trade and Health, as well as others in the private and public sectors representing business, science and consumers.
