Legally defining and labelling genome edited food: a Regulatory Hot Potato

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


Australian regulatory frameworks for food and gene technology were updated at the turn of the 21st century to address genetically modified plants. Less than two decades later, those regulations are being challenged by new breeding techniques. This session considers the problems raised for regulators and consumers when attempting to legally define and label food from genome edited plants.
