Biosafety Cleaning House (BCH) Workshop

The Cartagena Protocol is an international treaty that has established a framework for the regulation of the movement of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) from country to country. This protocol entered into force on the 11th of September 2003 and Barbados has been a party from its inception. The Biosafety Cleaning House (BCH) was a mechanism setup under the Cartagena Protocol in which information on GMOs can be compiled and made accessible to various parties seeking to import and export GMOs.
