In case of clinical trials with GMOs it is necessary to obtain the Minister's of Health consent, the Ethics Committee's opinion and consent by the Minister of the Environment for the use of GMOs. All clinical trials with GMOs in Poland are treated as the contained use of GMOs. Therefore the EU legal regime, namely Directive 2009/41/EC is at stake in case of clinical trials with GMOs. All such decisions are available to the public at: gmo.mos.gov.pl. Currently there are registered clinical gene therapy trials in Poland.
