Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of Cry3Bb1, a protein encoded by a gene isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), and it presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of this protein when produced in genetically engineered (GE) maize (Zea mays) plants. All sources of information reviewed herein are publicly available and include dossiers presented to regulatory authorities, decision documents prepared by regulatory authorities, product descriptions prepared by product developers, and peer-reviewed literature.
Thematic areas
  • Biosafety policy and regulation
    • Import / Export
  • Information sharing and management
    • Additional sources of biosafety information
  • LMO use and transboundary movement
    • LMOs for use as food or feed or for processing
    • LMOs for introduction into the environment (Environmental releases)
