Biosafety - BioTrack

Focus

  • Consensus Document on SAFFLOWER biology (Carthamus tinctorius)

    Dryland oilseed crop traditionally used for food and textile dyes, SAFFLOWER is now mostly cultivated for oil production. This consensus document provides science-based key insights for the regulatory assessment of the environmental safety of safflower genetically-engineered varieties: taxonomy, centres of origin, cultivation, reproductive biology, genetics, hybridisation and introgression, and ecology. Annexes present the safflower common pests and pathogens, and current biotechnology developments. Novel varieties are developed for increased oleic acid content, production of bovine pro-chymosin enzyme, and glufosinate tolerance.

  • Recent developments in delegations on Novel Food and Feed Safety

    This document compiles information on recent activities related to the safety assessment of novel foods and feeds at the international level between April 2019 and March 2020. The information was provided by OECD Members, partner countries and observer organisations participating in the work, prepared for the ‘Tour de Table’ of the annual meeting held in March 2020.

  • OECD Conference on Genome Editing: Applications in Agriculture

    The OECD Conference on Genome Editing: Applications in Agriculture – Implications for Health, Environment and Regulation explored the safety and regulatory considerations raised by genome edited products, with the aim to favour a coherent policy approach to facilitate innovation involving genome editing and will bring together policy makers, academia, innovators and other stakeholders involved in the topic.
