Message from the Director General

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and Salam Sejahtera.

Welcome and thank you for visiting the official website of the Department of Biosafety.

The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety is an international agreement that regulates the movement of living modified organisms (LMOs) across borders.

It was adopted on 29 January 2000 as a supplementary agreement to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and came into force on 11 September 2003. Malaysia has been a Party to the CBD since 1994 and the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety since 2003.

The Biosafety Department (JBK) was established in 2010, three years after the Biosafety Act [Act 678] was enacted and passed by Parliament in 2007. Two important functions of the JBK are to evaluate applications for the release, importation, export and contained use of LMOs, and release of products of such organisms; as well as to carry out monitoring and enforcement activities under the Act.

The website showcases the important role of JBK primarily as a key reference center for regulating the release, importation, export and contained use of LMO and the release of products of such organisms with the aim of protecting human, plant and animal health, environment and biological diversity. Our authoritative and up -to -date source of information on policies, statistics, publications and activities is also the information displayed on this website.

Selaras dengan matlamat kami untuk meningkatkan kesedaran orang ramai mengenai biokeselamatan, laman maya ini memberikan ruang kepada rakyat untuk meningkatkan pengetahuan dan menyampaikan cadangan dan maklum balas mereka. Selain itu, pelawat dapat mencari pautan yang berguna seperti portal Biosafety Clearing House (Portal BCH), pautan laman web Kementerian Sumber Asli, Alam Sekitar dan Perubahan Iklim dan agensi kerajaan utama serta halaman media sosial rasmi kami.

Thank you.

Dr. Azalia binti Mohamed
Director General
Department of Biosafety
