In early November 2014, the National Biosafety Board announced that it was assessing a proposal from the Malaysian Rubber Board to conduct confined field trails on genetically engineered (GE) rubber trees. The public comment period closed on November 28, 2014. If approved, this would be only the second GE crop approved for confined trials, after papaya earlier this year.
