GM food safety training package
News Feb 01, 2010
FAO's Food Quality and Standards Service has recently published "GM food safety assessment: Tools for trainers". The training package is composed of three parts. The first, 'Principles of safety assessment of foods derived from recombinant-DNA plants', provides guidance for the implementation of an effective framework for safety assessment of foods derived from recombinant-DNA plants.
The second, 'Tools and techniques for trainers',
offers a practical guide for preparing and delivering a workshop on the topic
of safety assessment of foods derived from recombinant-DNA plants. The third, 'Case studies', presents three safety assessment dossiers that have been summarized for training purposes. The target audience includes national foo safety regulators, authorities, and/or scientists tasked with training others to undertake the safety assessment of foods derived from recombinant-DNA plants.
