German Biosafety Clearing-House

Welcome to the German Biosafety Clearing-House (German BCH), the information platform for the biological safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The German BCH is a part of the globally linked Biosafety Clearing-House (BCH), which is the information hub for all Contracting Parties to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety. The Federal Republic of Germany is an official Party to the Protocol. The German BCH was established to promote the exchange of information and to increase the understanding of the biological safety of GMOs. This project was implemented by the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL), the competent national authority for the Biosafety Clearing-House.
