Recent Biosafety Information For Events Maize&Soya


This brief paper summarizes some of the latest findings regarding the safety of four transgenic events (MON810, MON863 and NK603 maize, and GTS-40-3-2 soya) that have been approved for human and animal consumption in many countries worldwide. Recent re¬search has also shown new pieces of in¬formation related to their environmental impacts; however, only food/feed safety results and interpretations are discussed in this paper. The studies focus on the appearance of novel indications for human and animal toxicity, highlighting the need for updated consideration of this important information by the food safety and biosafety authorities. It also underlines the need for new scientific information to continuously inform the decision-making process, including consideration of review of decisions/approvals, as provided for under Article 12 of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety.
