The Office of the Gene Technology Regulator assists the Gene Technology Regulator and is part of the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. The Agency was created under the Commonwealth Gene Technology Act 2000. This legislation establishes a single national system for regulating genetic engineering in Australia. Paragraph 3 of subsection 108 contains a list of areas of experience of the members of the advisory group. It states that the Minister, with two exceptions, cannot designate a person as a member of the advisory group unless the Minister is satisfied that the person has genetic engineering skills or experience in one or more of the following areas: environmental issues; Consumer issues The impact of genetic engineering on the Community; Issues of interest to the biotechnology industry; Questions relevant to genetic engineering research; Public health issues Issues relevant to primary production; and issues relevant to local communities. It is also possible to adopt rules that prescribe additional areas of expertise or experience. The development of a national regulatory system for the control of GMOs and the use of genetic technology to replace the existing management system; 8 requests for general (commercial) release of GMOs.

Genetic-based organisms are commonly referred to as „genetically modified organisms (GMOs). GM products are products (excluding GMOs) that are produced or produced from a GMO. Genetic engineering also causes changes in the characteristics of agricultural products that are not possible by other techniques. Accreditation bodies: ICCs are currently active in institutions that carry out genetic engineering work.
Currently, 92 IBCs are active in Australia. ICCs are within institutions and provide information and advice to researchers and GMAC. Under the new system, this system will be continued through the accreditation of organizations. An organization is accredited by the regulator if, to the satisfaction of the regulator, the body can find that the accredited body has set up an IBC in accordance with the guidelines of the regulator and maintains it. IbK will not play a regulatory role, but will continue to: help organizations understand regulatory requirements; and advice to the regulator on work at the institutional level. It is difficult to ensure that the industry provides the necessary information and that it makes appropriate risk assessment and management decisions.
