					Licence for dealings involving the intentional release of a GMO into the environment

Licence No: DIR 017/2002

Licence Holder: CSIRO

Title:

Agronomic assessments and efficacy studies of transgenic cotton expressing a new insecticidal protein gene
Issued: 14 October 2002 Varied: 8 December 2003 4 March 2005

More information about this licence is contained in the risk assessment and risk management plan prepared in connection with this licence. This document can be obtained from the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator website at http://www.ogtr.gov.au or by telephoning the Office on 1800 181 030.

Note in relation to insect resistance The genetically modified organisms referred to in this licence fall into the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code (1994) definition of an agricultural chemical product, due to their production of insecticidal substances, and are therefore subject to regulation by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) formerly the National Registration Authority (NRA) for Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals as plant pesticides. The APVMA will consider whether any specific insect resistance management strategies are required in relation to this release. Accordingly, the OGTR has not, in this licence, imposed conditions in relation to these matters as they are expected to be satisfactorily managed in the context of the APVMA assessment and approval process.

PART 2
Interpretation and Definitions Words and phrases used in this licence have the same meanings as they do in the Gene Technology Act 2000 (the Act) and the Gene Technology Regulations 2001. Words importing a gender include any other gender. Words in the singular include the plural and words in the plural include the singular. Words importing persons include a partnership and a body whether corporate or otherwise. References to any statute or other legislation (whether primary or subordinate) is to a statute or other legislation of the Commonwealth of Australia as amended or replaced from time to time unless the contrary intention appears. Where any word or phrase is given a defined meaning, any other part of speech or other grammatical form in respect of that word or phrase has a corresponding meaning. In this licence: „APVMA‟ means the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Chemicals Authority. ‘Clean’ (or ‘Cleaned’ or ‘Cleaning’) means, as the case requires: (a) in relation to a Location or an area, the destruction of: (b) the GMO and viable Material from the GMO, and (c) Pollen Trap plants and viable Material from Pollen Trap plants where a pollen trap is present (d) in that Location or area, to the reasonable satisfaction of the Regulator; or (e) in relation to Equipment, the removal and destruction of the GMO and viable Material from the GMO, Pollen Trap plants or viable Material from Pollen Trap plants from the Equipment, to the reasonable satisfaction of the Regulator. ‘Cotton’ means plants of the species Gossypium hirsutum L. ‘Covered Vehicles’ means vehicles that use tight fitting covers to prevent spillage of the seed transported in them (for example, vehicles that contain seed in steel or aluminium bulk bins covered with tight, well fitting weather-proof tarpaulins or similar). ‘Destroy’ (or ‘Destroyed’ or ‘Destruction’) means, as the case requires, killed by one or more of the following methods: (a) stalk pulling; or (b) uprooting by ploughing; or (c) burning; or (d) treatment with herbicide; or (e) hand weeding.

PAGE 5 of 19

Note: ‘As the case requires’ has the effect that, depending on the circumstances, one or more of these techniques may not be appropriate. For example, in the case of killing the remains of harvest of the GMO, treatment of post harvest remains by herbicide would not be a sufficient mechanism. ‘Equipment’ includes harvesters, seeders, storage equipment, transport equipment (eg bags, containers, trucks), ginning facilities, clothing and tools. ‘GM’ means genetically modified. ‘GMO’ means genetically modified organisms authorised for release by this licence. ‘GMO 1, 2, 3’ means one of the GMOs described at “Description of GMO covered”. ‘Light tillage’ or ‘lightly tilled’ means the use of a technique to disturb the soil in an area so as not to bury plant material in the area to a depth of more than 50mm. ‘Location’ means an area of land where the GMO is planted and grown. Note: In this licence, before the GMO is planted and grown in a field or other area, this licence refers to that field or area as an area or place. Once the GMO is planted in a field or place, while it is being grown and thereafter, this licence refers to that field or place as a Location ‘Material from Pollen Trap plants’ means seed, stubble, pollen or any GM material (including parts of a plant) that is derived from or produced by cotton from a Pollen Trap. ‘Material from the GMO’ means GM seed, stubble, pollen or any other GM material (including part of GMO) that is derived from or produced by the GMO (but does not include cotton lint derived from ginning). Note: cotton lint derived from ginning is not intended to be controlled by any licence conditions in this licence. ‘Natural Waterways’ means waterways other than irrigation channels, holding dams or storage ponds used to collect water runoff from irrigated areas. ‘OGTR’ means the Office of the Gene Technology Regulator. ‘Field Pea’ means Pisum sativum. ‘Pollen Trap’ with respect to GMO 1 (cotton) means an area of land, extending at least 20 metres in all directions from the outer edge of a Location described at Attachment A, containing either non-genetically modified cotton, INGARD® cotton and/or Bollgard II® cotton that is grown in such a way as to reasonably promote a dense and vigorous growth and flowering of the Pollen Trap plants at the same time as the GMO. A pollen trap with respect to GMO 3 (subclover) must extend at least 5 metres in all directions from the outer edge of a Location described at Attachment C, containing nongenetically modified clover that is grown in such a way as to reasonably promote a dense and vigorous growth and flowering of the Pollen Trap plants at the same time as the GMO. Licence No. DIR 017/2002 issued 14 October 2002 – Varied 4 March 2005 PAGE 6 of 19

Explanatory note: The use of Bollgard II® and INGARD ® cotton as Pollen Trap Plants is subject to licence conditions contained in licence numbers DIR 012/2002 and GR-3, respectively. The conditions in licence numbers DIR 012/2002 and GR-3 operate in addition to the conditions in this licence. Condition 6.1 of this licence stipulates that all Pollen Trap plants must be treated as though they are the GMO. This means that if Bollgard II® or INGARD ® are planted in the Pollen Trap, they must be treated as though they are the GMO under this licence. ‘Subclover’ means Trifolium subterraneum subsp. subterraneum cv. Leura ‘Volunteer plant’ means progeny of the GMO or of a Pollen Trap plant.
