Call for expressions of interest to deregulate some organisms
The period for responding to this call for expressions of interest closed on 4 June 2021.
We are now evaluating and assessing each proposed organism on a case-by-case basis for referral to the Minister for the Environment. Once the Minister has decided on a shortlist, further public consultation will take place. Ultimately, Cabinet will make the final decision on deregulation of any proposed organism.
We will advise all submitters of the result of their proposals.
Submissions sent after the deadline will not be considered until the next call for proposals.
