On the basis of their study "Regulations of gentic engineering abroad and practical experience with their execution" the authors comment on a bill for an amendment of the German genetic engineering law. The proposed amendments conform with the relevant EU guidelines 90/219/EWG and 90/220/EWG. The authors welcome amendmends which aim at making approval procedures more efficient or adjust the regulations to the dynamic development in science and technology (e.g. shortening of time requirements until approval is obtained, streamlining procedures of no or low risk). With respect to the proposed abolition of public hearings in deliberate release experiments and commercial facilities of risk class 2 the authors point out that an unintended impact of this amendment may be the loss of public acceptance of genetic engineering. Moreover, it is pointed out that efficient approval procedures cannot be attained by amendments of the law alone if they are not complemented by appropriate administrative measures.
