Gene Technology Technical Advisory CommitteeGTTAC is a statutory committee of up to 20 members established under the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act) to provide scientific and technical advice to support the national scheme for regulating genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Australia. A key function of GTTAC is to provide advice on applications and risk assessments for environmental release of GMOs, including GMOs for agricultural and medical purposes.
Further information on the current membership and work of the Committee can be found on the GTTAC webpage.
Who Should Nominate?Nominees should have recognised skills and experience relevant to gene technology and GMOs. Committee members including the Chair are appointed as individuals based on their expertise and not as representatives of a particular organisation.

With a view to increasing female representation on committees, suitably qualified women are particularly encouraged to nominate.
