Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
Consensus Documents contain information for use during the regulatory assessment of a particular product. In the area of plant biosafety, Consensus Documents are being developed on the biology of certain plant species, on specific genes and resulting proteins that, when introduced into a plant, result in the expression of specific traits, and on Biosafety issues arising from certain general trait modifications made to plants. This document, which addresses general information concerning the genes and their enzymes that confer tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate, was prepared by the United States as lead country in collaboration with Germany and the Netherlands. It has been revised based on comments received from OECD Member countries and on subsequent comments from National Co-ordinators, following a second round of review in 1998.
