Description: Some countries/areas such as Canada, the European Union, the Mainland China, Australia and New Zealand have promulgated regulations that require pre-market safety assessment of GM food before their launching on the market. In the United States, producers and developers of GM food are encouraged to consult with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before placing them on the market. So far, all GM food produced in the US has completed consultation with FDA before available for sale on the market. Most of the GM food available on the international market is, or is derived from, GM crops. Please refer to the database below for crops that have GM counterparts and approved for food use in different countries.
