Samoa's National Biosafety Framework

Date created: 07 March 2022

Biotechnology has been used by Samoan farmers for many years to crossbreed plants and animals. However, modern biotechnology, where genes are transferred between species, is a relatively new concept in Samoa. The products of modern biotechnology are often referred to as Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Bio-safety is a way of reducing the potential risks that may result from modern biotechnology and its products.

This National Biosafety Framework is for the safe transfer, handling and use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) resulting from modern biotechnology
