Implementing National Biosafety Frameworks in the Caribbean Sub-Region Guidelines for the Risk Assessment of Commonly Regulated GM Crop Events

Title

Implementing National Biosafety Frameworks in the Caribbean Sub-Region Guidelines for the Risk Assessment of Commonly Regulated GM Crop Events

Description

Many GM crops have been evaluated for environmental and food safety
by several national regulatory authorities and are now traded and used
internationally by many countries worldwide. There now exists a substantial
history of safe use for these crops, supported by numerous regulatory
decision documents and published peer-reviewed literature. This existing
body of data is of sufficient substance and quality to inform determinations
of safety for the use of these GM crops in (country). Using the approach
described herein, the Government of (country) intends to draw upon all
this information to efficiently and proactively determine environmental and
food safety of individual GM crops.
