GMM (genetically modified microorganisms) is defined as "a micro-organism, in which the genetic material has been altered in a manner that would not occur naturally through mating or natural recombination". The gene modification must not necessarily have been integrated in the genome, or constructed in the user's own activities. GMM work is divided into three different classes, F-, L- and R-activities. GMM work is divided into three different classes, F-, L- and R-activities and before starting with such work a permit from Arbetsmiljöverket is needed.
Risk assessments have to be carried out for work with microorganisms, GMM and human material and should be available in the lab where the work is carried out. Use preferentially the BARA form: https://ki.se/en/staff/biosafety
