Is the Queensland Code For Biotechnology a Good Model for Canada? – A Preliminary Analysis
Prepared by the IOG for the Office of Biotechnology and Science at Health Canada, this paper investigates the benefits of a code for biotechnology in Canada and a possible model for such a code. It examines the rationale for a code, explores the merits and drawbacks of three model codes, and conducts a preliminary preference analysis based on stakeholder interviews. The paper concludes that the development of a code is worth pursuing, but that more consultation and research is required.
