Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
Draft guidelines describe the process of analysis and assessment of ecological hazards associated with the introduction of herbicide resistant crops (HRC) or genetically modified insect resistant (e.g. with genes coding for endotoxins from Bacillus thuringiensis) crops (IRC). Furthermore, the guidelines list the responsibilities of governmental authorities, applicant or permit holders and farmers growing HRC and IRC. The main aim of the guidelines is to provide a framework, especially for countries that have not developed their own regulations, on assessing the ecological risks of HRC/IRCs.
