Scientific Advisory Committee on Genetic Modification (Contained Use) (SACGM (CU))


The SACGM(CU) provides technical and scientific advice to HSE and Ministers for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, as well as their counterparts in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Careful consideration has recently been given to future advisory requirements in relation to GM contained use activities and it has been concluded that the emphasis is now on obtaining independent expert scientific/technical advice for the UK CA on specific GM notifications and related issues. SACGM (CU) came into effect on 1 January 2004.
