Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
A country that is setting out to explore the benefits of modern agricultural biotechnology for national development must be prepared to do so in a safe, systematic, and transparent manner. The Integrated Confinement System for Genetically Engineered Plants provides model procedures and documents for the regulation and conduct of Confined Field Trials (CFTs) with genetically engineered (GE) plants. These models may be used by regulators and scientists in their efforts to develop a comprehensive national system ensuring biosafety, accountability, and transparency in field evaluations of GE plants.
