Posted on: 2012-09-02

Three new members have been appointed to the Government’s Advisory Committee on Releases to the Environment (ACRE).

ACRE is an independent advisory committee composed of leading scientific and farming experts. Its main function is to give statutory advice to Ministers in the UK and Devolved Administrations on the risks to human health and the environment from the release and marketing of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It also advises on the release of certain non-GM species of plants and animals that are not native to Great Britain.

The three new members are:

  • Dr Rosemary Collier, Director of the Warwick Crop Centre at the School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick – expertise in insect ecology, insect biology and pest management;
  • Dr Matthew Heard, Head of Community Ecology at the NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Wallingford – expertise in community ecology; and
  • Simon Kerr, Head of Regional Trials for the National Institute for Agricultural Botany – expertise in agronomy and farming practice.

These appointments have been made following agreement by Defra ministers and the Devolved Administrations, to whom ACRE also reports.
