Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms, Volume 4

OECD Consensus Documents

The books on “Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms” constitute a compilation of the OECD Biosafety Consensus Documents. When published, Volume 1 and 2 contained the documents issued before 2006; Volume 3 and 4 are a continuation of the compilation up to 2010.

The 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 and some non members associated with the work. This is intended to encourage information sharing, promote harmonised practices, and prevent duplication of effort among countries.

These books offer ready access to those consensus documents which have been issued on the website thus far. As such, it should be of value to applicants for commercial uses of transgenic organisms (crops, trees, microorganisms), to regulators and risk assessors 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).

Section 3 - Guidance document on methods for detection of micro-organisms introduced into the environment: Bacteria

The aim of this Guidance Document is to provide information on the “state-of-the-art” detection methods available for micro-organisms released into the environment. The document is meant to offer guidance to regulators and applicants on how to interpret and evaluate data from scientific studies. It is therefore not an exhaustive list of all detection methods presently available, but a document that discusses the merits and pitfalls of a number of the most current, frequently used methods. However, this can also be helpful for similar discussions on alternative, or newly developed methods.
