Food and Feed Safety Assessment

CropLife International member companies are committed to ensuring that biotech crops are as safe as conventional crops for food and feed.  The principles for assessing the safety of biotech crops have been defined by Codex and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) (Codex Alimentarius, 2003, 2004; OECD, 2015) and have been applied by applicants and regulators globally in the risk assessments of commercialized biotech products over the past 20 years.

The CropLife International Food Feed Project Team (FFPT) was established with the aim of driving regulatory policies and advocacy in the area of food and feed safety globally. The FFPT is responsible for promoting global standards and approaches to satisfy data requirements for Food and Feed Safety Assessment of biotech crops for product submission through coordination with several expert teams within CropLife International and other partners in the plant biotech environment.
