Biotechnology - Laboratories for research, development and analysis - Guidance on containment of genetically modified plants

This European Standard gives biological, physical and procedural containment measures for work with genetically modified plants including plants where the transferred genetic material is derived from a non-plant source. It defines measures to minimize hazards identified by risk analysis.
Containment may be provided in a greenhouse or in a growthroom, laboratory or other containment facility.
Containment of genetically modified microorganisms and/or small animals associated with plants is not included in this standard. Containment of microorganisms in laboratories is covered in EN 12128.

Biotechnik - Laboratorien für Forschung, Entwicklung und Analyse - Leitfaden für die Einschließung von gentechnisch veränderten Pflanzen

Diese Europäische Norm beschreibt biologische, physikalische und verfahrenstechnische Sicherheitsmaßnahmen für  Arbeiten mit gentechnisch veränderten Pflanzen, einschließlich Pflanzen, bei denen das übertragene genetische Material von einer nichtpflanzlichen Quelle stammt. Sie legt Maßnahmen zur Verringerung der Gefährdung fest, die durch eine Risikoanalyse bestimmt werden.
Die Einschließung kann in einem Gewächshaus oder Anzuchtraum, Laboratorium oder anderen Sicherheitsbereichen erfolgen.
Die Einschließung von gentechnisch veränderten Mikroorganismen und/oder Kleintieren, die mit den Pflanzen in Verbindung stehen, werden in dieser Norm nicht behandelt. Die Einschließung von Mikroorganismen in Laboratorien wird in EN 12128 behandelt.

Biotechnologie - Laboratoires de recherche, développement et analyse - Guide pour le confinement des plantes génétiquement modifiées

La présente norme européenne précise les mesures de confinement biologique, physique et opératoire relatives au travail avec des plantes génétiquement modifiées, y compris des plantes dont le matériel génétique introduit provient d'une source non végétale. La présente norme définit les mesures permettant de réduire au minimum les dangers identifiés lors de l'analyse du risque.
Le confinement peut être mis en place dans une serre, dans une chambre de culture, dans un laboratoire ou dans toute autre installation de confinement.
Le confinement des micro-organismes et/ou des petits animaux génétiquement modifiés associés à des plantes n'est pas traité dans la présente norme. Le confinement des micro-organismes en laboratoire est traité dans l'EN 12128.

EN 13441:2001 (E)3ForewordThis European Standard has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 233 "Biotechnology", the secretariatof which is held by AFNOR.This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text orby endorsement, at the latest by May 2002, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest byMay 2002.This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the EuropeanFree Trade Association.According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the followingcountries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland,France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden,Switzerland and the United Kingdom.SIST EN 13441:2002

EN 13441:2001 (E)4IntroductionThe measures described in this European Standard are designed to contain genetically modified plants, where thisis required. Genetically modified plants include those in which the introduced genetic material is derived fromanother plant or from a non-plant source, for example a virus or other microorganism. Containment of geneticallymodified microorganisms, the subject of Directive 98/81/EC (including 90/219/EEC) [1] and/or genetically modifiedsmall animals associated with plants is not included in this standard; their containment may require differentmeasures from those mentioned here.The containment principles described apply both to greenhouses, including growth tunnels, and to the morecomplex containment facilities required when greenhouses do not provide the degree of containment required.Risk analysis is required to determine any hazard and its magnitude as well as the containment measures neededto minimize the risk.The selection of containment measures for plants classified in a given group requires identification of the meansincluding work practices, by which particular plants may be dispersed in the relevant situation. Containmentmeasures used for one species may be irrelevant to another, which is dispersed by different mechanisms.Containment measures are therefore selected for the particular situation.In many cases, containment by biological rather than structural means will be appropriate. The use of male sterileplants and maternally inherited genetic modifications are examples of potential biological containment measures.Users of this European Standard may be involved with hazards associated with materials, operations andequipment. This European Standard does not address all off these safety problems. It is the responsibility of theuser of this European Standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicabilityof regulatory limitations for the proposed work.SIST EN 13441:2002
