• Training on Genetically Modified Organism’s (GMO) Food Safety Assessment and Risk Communication held

    23-27 July, Thimphu: The training Program on “GMO Food Safety Assessment and Risk Communication” was organised by Bhutan Agriculture and Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA), Ministry of Agriculture and Forests with Financial and Technical support from Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

    With enactment of Bio-safety Act of Bhutan 2015 and Bio-safety Rules and Regulations 2018, BAFRA is mandated to implement and enforce activities related to GMO.

As such, this training on GM food safety assessment is essential to assess risks posed by GM food and feed, should there be an import of food/feed derived from GMOs.
