    FAO/WHO Expert Consultation on the Safety Assessment of Foods Derived from Recombinant-DNA Animals. Report
    Geneva, Switzerland, 26 February – 2 March 2007
    2007
    Also available in:

    A joint FAO/WHO Expert Consultation on the Safety Assessment of Foods Derived from Recombinant-DNA Animals was held at the Headquarters of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva from 26 February to 2 March 2007. The objective was to provide scientific advice to FAO/WHO and their Member States on two sets of questions regarding: i) marker and reporter genes; and ii) non-heritable applications. The Codex ad hoc Intergovernmental Task Force on Foods Derived from Biotechnology had specificall y requested advice on these questions. This Consultation built upon the conclusions and recommendations from the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Consultation on the Safety Assessment of Foods Derived from Genetically Modified Animals, including Fish (FAO/WHO 2004). A variety of reporter and selectable marker genes are used extensively in plants and laboratory animals and are now being used in food animals. Few non-antibiotic resistance marker and reporter genes are currently used for producing recombinant- DNA animals intended for food and no studies are available on their food safety. It would be desirable to develop new selectable marker genes that do not confer antibiotic resistance.

    Foods derived from modern biotechnology
    Second Edition
    2009
    The texts in this publication represent the outcome of the work of the Codex Alimentarius Commission on principles and guidelines for food safety assessment of foods derived from modern biotechnology. They give guidance on how to assess the safety of such foods and thus protect the health of consumers. This second edition includes texts adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission up to 2008. The Codex Alimentarius Commission is an intergovernmental body with more than 180 members, within the fr amework of the Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme established by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO). The main result of the Commission’s work is the Codex Alimentarius, a collection of internationally adopted food standards, guidelines, codes of practice and other recommendations, with the objective of protecting the health of consumers and ensuring fair practices in the food trade.

    Aliments dérivés des biotechnologies 2004
    2. La Commission du Codex Alimentarius a adopté des Principes et Directives sur les aliments dérivés des biotechnologies à sa vingt-sixième session en 2003. Il s’agit de principes de portée générale sur l’analyse des risques des aliments dérivés des biotechnologies modernes et de directives pour l’évaluation de la sécurité sanitaire des aliments dérivés de plantes et microorganismes à ADN recombiné. Cette publication sous format réduit devrait permettre une plus ample utilisation et une meilleur e compréhension de l’analyse des risques et de l’évaluation de la sécurité sanitaire des aliments dérivés des biotechnologies par les gouvernements, les autorités réglementaires, les industries alimentaires et tous ceux qui manipulent les aliments, et les consommateurs.
