Summary, abstract or table of contents
This document provides guidance for the scientific risk assessment of genetically modified microorganisms (GMMs) and their derived products intended for food and feed use. In particular, it provides detailed guidance to assist in the preparation and presentation of applications to market GMMs and their products for food and/or feed use, according to Regulation (EC) 1829/2003 (EC, 2003a). In addition, this document provides guidance for the risk assessment of food and feed produced using GMMs, irrespective of whether they fall in the scope of Regulation (EC) 1829/2003 or not. Issues related to risk management of GMOs (traceability, labelling) are outside the scope of the guidance document.
