I hope I didn?t miss this in another section, but i searched with no success. I am looking for any information on the requirements for shipping items that fall under the Cartagena Protocol. We manufacture antibodies and recombinant proteins and we had a question asked by a customer in in Japan who identified the material as falling under the protocol. The material is identified as a recombinant and he is requesting a statement, but I?m unable to find any examples nor do I have any idea of what is required after going through the protocol. any help would be greatly appreciated. we have been selling these material for years over there and have never had this come up.
Thank you in advance,
Matt

Stijloor, thanks for the bump.

It looks like our customer in Japan doesnt even have an example of a statement from another vendor to show me either.

For those of us following along: Wikipedia reference-linkCartagena_Protocol_on_Biosafety

The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety to the Convention on Biological Diversity is an international agreement on biosafety, as a supplement to the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Biosafety Protocol seeks to protect biological diversity from the potential risks posed by genetically modified organisms resulting from modern biotechnology.

The Biosafety Protocol makes clear that products from new technologies must be based on the precautionary principle and allow developing nations to balance public health against economic benefits. It will for example let countries ban imports of a genetically modified organisms if they feel there is not enough scientific evidence that the product is safe and requires exporters to label shipments containing genetically altered commodities such as corn or cotton.

The required number of 50 instruments of ratification/accession/approval/acceptance by countries was reached in May 2003. In accordance with the provisions of its Article 37, the Protocol entered into force on 11 September 2003. The Protocol has 168 parties, which includes 166 United Nations member states, Niue, and the European Union.
