United Kingdom Advisory Committee on Releases to the Environment ACRE httpwwwdefragovukenvironmentacre

ACRE, a nondepartmental public body, advises the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on applications to field test or release for commercial use agricultural GMOs. The site has extensive background information on the release of GMOs in the European Union, lists of applications for experimental trials and to market GMOs, application formats for deliberate releases and marketing of higher plants and organisms other than higher plants, a statement on GM animals, and more. The Guidance on Principles of Best Practice in the Design of Genetically Modified Plants documents how the design and construction of GM plants could be used to further improve their safety and/or to simplify the risk assessment.
