Remarks:
The UK's Advisory Committee on Releases to the Environment has advised that the release of this GM soil bacterium poses a very low risk to human health and the environment. The consent details when and where the trial can take place. It is conditional on monitoring for the GMO throughout the trial site and in adjacent land. Monitoring can only be terminated once the Secretary of State has agreed its design and output. As this is a Part B release, the consent specifies minimum requirements in the design of the trial site so that dispersal of the GMO is minimised.
