Apply for a permit for the construction and operation of genetic engineering plants

Genetic engineering plants of safety levels 1 to 4 are facilities in which genetic engineering work is carried out in a closed system in order to limit the contact of the organisms used with humans and the environment and to ensure a level of safety appropriate to the hazard potential.

You may only carry out genetic engineering work in genetic engineering plants.

As the operator of a genetic engineering plant, you must notify, notify or have approved the construction and operation of the plant as well as further genetic engineering work with the competent authority, depending on the safety level. The competent authority shall acknowledge receipt of the application without delay.
