Brief description of the document including objective and scope:
This guidance document addresses the assessment of the safety of GM animal-derived food and feed for humans and animals, placed on the market within the framework of Regulation (EC) No 1829/20035. It also addresses the health and welfare assessment of the GM animals. Animals that were taken into consideration include all husbandry animals, and fish, as well as crustaceans and molluscs. Insects and other invertebrates were not taken into account, with the exception of honey bees that are used in agricultural practice. This guidance does not address issues related to risk management (traceability, labelling, coexistence). Ethical and socio-economic issues are also outside the scope of the document.
