    Foods Derived from Biotechnology 2004
    2. The Codex Alimentarius Commission at its 26th session in 2003 adopted Principles and Guidelines on foods derived from biotechnology. These are overarching principles on the risk analysis of foods derived from modern biotechnology and guidelines for food safety assessment of foods derived from recombinant-DNA plants and microorganisms. It is hoped that this compact format will allow wide use and understanding of the risk analysis and safety assessment of food derived from biotechnology and tha t it will encourage their use by governments, regulatory authorities, food industries and all food handlers, and consumers.
