Kenyan biosafety law ratified

The Kenyan President has ratified the country’s Biosafety Bill. Parliament approved the Bill late last year ( Agrow No 559, p 21). The President’s approval means that regulatory authorities can establish regulations to facilitate the Biosafety Bill’s implementation, the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) says. It believes that any biosafety law adopted in Kenya should help neighbouring countries with their own biotechnology practices. Many are looking to Kenya to take the first steps on biosafety measures, the Service says. Three African countries, Burkina Faso, Egypt, and South Africa, grew GM crops on a commercial basis last year (see this issue). Ten have biosafety legislation.
