Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
This report is a follow-up to the 1986 publication "Recombinant DNA Safety Considerations" (a.k.a. "The Blue Book"), which set out the first international safety guidelines for biotechnology applications to industry, to agriculture and to the environment.

This report deals with two priority issues of this programme which are connected with the important development of biotechnology industrial production and field experiments in Member countries. Namely, it elaborates the initial scientific criteria set forth in 1986 for the safe development, under "Good Industrial Large-Scale Practice" (GILSP), of fermentation-derived biotechnology products and defines "Good Developmental Principles" (GDP) for the design of safe small-scale field research with plants and micro-organisms with newly introduced traits.
