Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms, Volume 1

OECD Consensus Documents

image of Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms, Volume 1

These OECD Biosafety Consensus Documents identify elements of scientific information used in the environmental safety and risk assessment of transgenic organisms which are common to OECD member countries.  This is intended to encourage information sharing and prevent duplication of effort among countries. This book offers ready access to those consensus documents which have been published thus far. As such, it should be of value to applicants for commercial uses of transgenic crops, regulators in national authorities as well as the wider scientific community. More information on the OECD's work related to the biosafety of transgenic organisms is found at BioTrack Online (http://www.oecd.org/biotrack).


Introduction to the Biosafety Consensus Documents

OECD’s Working Group comprises delegates from the 30 Member countries of OECD and the European Commission. Typically, delegates are from those government ministries and agencies, which have responsibility for the environmental risk/safety assessment of products of modern biotechnology. The Working Group also includes a number of observer delegations and invited experts who participate in its work. They include: Argentina; Russia; Slovenia; the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD); the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO); and the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to OECD (BIAC).
