Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms: OECD Consensus Documents

 

‌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.
