Additional Information
Additional Information
The OECD coordinates a programme on the harmonization of regulatory oversight in biotechnology. The objective of the programme is to promote international harmonization in biotechnology, which will ensure that environmental health and safety aspects are properly evaluated, while avoiding non-tariff barriers to products of the technology. The major component of the programme is the development of consensus documents, which comprise technical information for use during the technical assessment of products of biotechnology, and are intended to be mutually recognized among OECD Member Countries. These documents focus on the biology of organisms (such as plants, animals, or microorganisms), or traits, and contain scientific evidence that is useful for environmental safety assessment. OECD also has further information exchange mechanisms and outreach activities with UNEP and UNIDO.
