Consensus Documents for the Work on Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology


These consensus documents comprise technical information for use during the regulatory assessment of products of biotechnology and are intended to be mutually recognised among OECD Member countries. They focus on the biology of organisms (such as plants, trees or micro-organisms) or introduced novel traits.

These documents are updated to take into account new knowledge on the topic. In order to assist in this, it is possible to make comments to the OECD on the Biotechnology Consensus Documents.
