Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety Protocol to CBD Objective: to ensure the safe handling, transport and use of living modified organisms (LMOs) resulting from modern biotechnology that may have adverse effects on biological diversity Adopted in: 2000 (as a supplementary agreement to the CBD) Papaya is the first genetically modified fruit authorized for marketing. It was developed in the USA, at the Universities of Hawaii and Cornell. It is designed to resist the 'Ringspot'virus. In to force: On 11 September, 2003

LMOs that are pharmaceuticals for humans are excluded from the scope of the protocol if they are covered by other international agreements or arrangements Any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology. .
