Guidelines for the Safety Assessment of Foods Derived from Genetically Engineered Plants

To address the human health safety of foods derived from GE plants, there is a need to
adopt a systematic and structured approach to their risk analysis. Risk analysis is a
science based process comprised of risk assessment, risk management and risk
communication and is an analytical tool to systematically evaluate safety concerns
addressing human health safety of GM foods within a framework for decision making. It
also provides further basis for reviewing the safety evaluation parameters as and when
further information becomes available.
