Organization’s profile
The core task of the EU-RL GMFF is the scientific assessment and validation of detection methods for GM Food and Feed as part of the EU authorisation procedure. The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and, more precisely, the Molecular Biology and Genomics Unit of the Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP), has been given the mandate for the operation of the EU-RL GMFF. Activities are carried out in close collaboration with European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL).
The EU-RL GMFF operates according to a quality management system certified and accredited according to ISO 9001 and ISO 17025.
