Safety Assessment of Foods and Feeds Derived from Transgenic Crops, Volume 2

Volume II of this series compiles the science-based consensus documents of the OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds from 2009 to 2014. They contain information for use during the regulatory assessment of food/feed products of modern biotechnology, i.e. developed from transgenic crops. Relevant information includes compositional considerations (nutrients, anti-nutrients, toxicants, allergens), use of the plant species as food/feed, key products and components suggested for analysis of new varieties for food use and for feed use, and other elements. These documents should be of value to applicants for commercial uses of novel foods and feeds, regulators and risk assessors in national authorities for their comparative approach, as well as the wider scientific community.

Molecular characterisation of plants derived from modern biotechnology

This chapter was jointly developed by the OECD Working Group on the Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology and the OECD Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds, with Canada serving as lead country of an Expert Steering Group. It addresses the issues linked to molecular characterisation in safety assessment of recombinant-DNA plants derived from modern biotechnology. Based on experience from the use of these procedures with advanced technology, it describes the background and purpose of molecular characterisation, the transformation methods, the inserted DNA, the insertion site and expressed material, the inheritance and genetic stability.
