EFSA experts aim to harmonise GMO data analysis

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published a new opinion aimed at harmonising how data from field trials carried out for the risk assessment of GM plants and derived food and feed are produced and analysed. The objective of the document is to contribute to greater transparency in the risk assessment of GMOs and also to allow for a more rapid evaluation of applications. The experts on EFSA’s GMO Panel put forward some general rules on minimum requirements for the design of field trials aimed at ensuring more accurate statistical evaluation of the safety of GM plants. As with all guidance, the document may well be updated in the future in the light of experience and development of scientific knowledge.
