Background: A communication and information sharing gap was identified by the National Biodiversity Association (NBA) especially for its operations that require collaboration with other regulatory bodies and stakeholders. The need for an information management solution was further stirred when the National Biosafety Authority was instituted to operate modern biotechnology activities in Ghana, requiring collaboration with other large regulatory agencies such as the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA). 

Solution: Bewsys designed and developed this website to aid the NBA team. The web portal was designed and featured a national biosafety information system for handling requests of GMO compliance and used a web-based forum and a system for information sharing. 

Impact: From the pilot, it was determined that the web portal simplified one of the NBA’s core mandates - the Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) certification process through effective information sharing and collaboration between the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA).
