The notification requirements for the first-time use of a premises for contained use (and subsequent contained use) of GMMs are dependent on the Class.

The following link sets out the notification requirements for the first-time use of a premises and for the subsequent contained use of GMOs (i.e. GM plants and/or GM animals).
For example, a consent issued in respect of a Class 2 GMM contained use activity will also permit the user to use Class 1 GMMs. The user will not be required to submit a separate or new notification in respect of the Class 1 GMM use.
For example, a Class 2 GMM user will be required to submit a notification to the EPA and obtain consent in respect of any Class 3 GMM use not previously notified.
Send notifications for GMM and GMO contained use activities to firstname.lastname@example.org
The EPA does not issue invoices. If required, we will issue a letter on EPA headed paper stating the fees involved.
|Class of activity||
First-time use of a premises
Subsequent contained use
|Class 1 GMM||250||0|
|Class 2 GMM||1,875||625|

Once the EPA has received a notification for first-time use of the premises or the subsequent contained use of a GMM and corresponding fee, we will acknowledge receipt of the notification, citing the date on which the notification was received.
The EPA will issue the user with a GMO Register number (G0XXX-01).
The EPA will review the notification and grant consent, with or without conditions, or refuse consent.
The flowchart below provides an overview of the procedure involved in obtaining a consent for the contained use of a GMM/GMO in accordance with the GMO (Contained Use) Regulations 2001-2010.
