Uganda Biosafety Bill - Simplified verision

This is a simplified verision of the Uganda National Biotechnology and Biosafety Bill 2012. It summarises the main provision of the bill, the institutional framework proposed, risk assessment, offences and penalties, and approval mechanisms for different modern biotechnology related activities.

 

Cassava CFT Handbook Uganda

This manual presents the detailed procedure to follow when conducting Confied Field Trials of transgenic cassava in Uganda. It should be used in conjuction with the Trial Managers' Handbook for Confined Field Trials.

 

Cotton CFT Handbook Uganda

This manual presents the detailed procedure to follow when conducting Confied Field Trials of transgenic cotton in Uganda. It should be used in conjuction with the Trial Managers' Handbook for Confined Field Trials.

 

National Guidelines for Containment

These Guidelines seek to assist establishment and maintenance of containment facilities in order to ensure safety in biotechnology research and development.


Guidelines for conducting Confined Field Trials

These Guidelines together with companion manuals give a unified framework of methods, procedures, processes and suitable forms for conducting field experiments with genetically engineered crops


Trial Managers' Handbook for Confined Field Trials

This manual provides procedures and forms for field experiments with genetically engineered crops

 

Biosafety Inspection Manual

This manual provides detailed procedures for inspecting confined field trials of regulated genetically modified crops


Crop Biology Documents

The Biology of Banana and Plantain

This crop biology document is intended to provide background information on the biology of Musa spp, its centre of origin, its related species and the potential for gene introgression with relatives, and its usefulness as a crop in Uganda


Cassava Biology Document

This document provide background information on the reproductive biology of cassava and practices for confinement of experimental field trials


Cotton Biology Document

This Biosafety Consensus Document published by OECD is intended to be a “snapshot” of current information on a cotton, for use during regulatory assessments.
