New biotech and food safety website

OECD Observer

Keeping up with policy challenges in the fast-changing world of biotechnology is not easy.

A new web site devoted to biotechnology and food safety recently launched at OECD might help to change that. The new site brings together the Organisation’s rich expertise and experience in biotechnology in a user-friendly and interactive way.

Features include a list of frequently asked questions about biotechnology, an NGO link area and a public message board called Forum. The new site provides links to the Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds and briefing pages on all the major work being carried out in the field of biotechnology at OECD.

So, whether your interest is in the area of health, the environment, agriculture, biodiversity, industry, trade or most other aspects of biotechnology and food safey, this site should prove useful to you.

For more information, contact either the, or the web editor, Gunther Pauls.
