    Upon the official request of the Royal Government of the Kingdom of Bhutan, a training workshop entitled “Training workshop on GM food safety assessment: Using a real case study” was co-organized by the Bhutan Agriculture and Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on 4 – 15 February 2019 in Paro, Bhutan. A total of 12 participants comprising Bhutan Biosafety Technical Working Group (TWG) members or their nominated representatives and BAFRA officials attended the workshop, which was run by an FAO Technical Panel Expert from Food Standards Australia New Zealand assisted by an FAO Food Safety Officer. The International Rice Research Institute had provided its complete regulatory dossier (already submitted formally to several regulatory agencies) on biofortified rice event GR2E (Golden Rice) as an in-kind contribution to FAO, for the express purpose of providing an example of a ‘real’ application for developing countries to work through. Using this dossier, workshop participants were able to meet the objectives of the workshop, which were to provide: 1. An understanding of the various techniques that are used to generate the data for a genetically modified (GM) food application; 2. An appreciation of how to go about assessing the safety data 3. A understanding of the administrative, legal and communication activities associated with handling a GM food application 4. Recommendations for finalizing a guideline and information document for potential applicants. Key words: GM foods; food safety; capacity building
