These regulations, which come into force on 15 September 2019, amend the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (Organisms Prescribed as Not New Organisms) Regulations 2009.

The regulations add 5 organisms to the schedule of organisms that are “not new” organisms for the purposes of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996.
