Summary of the safety assessment:
Syngenta Philippines had filed an application with attached technical dossiers to the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) for a biosafety notification for direct use as food, feed and for processing under Administrative Order (AO) No. 8 Part 5 for stacked trait product corn: Bt11 x MIR 162 x TC1507 x GA21 which has been genetically modified for insect resistance and herbicide tolerance.
A safety assessment of combined trait product corn: Bt11 x MIR 162 x TC1507 x GA21 was conducted as per Department of Agriculture Administrative Order No. 8 Series of 2002 and Memorandum Circulars Nos. 6 and 8, Series of 2004. The focus of risk assessment is the gene interactions between/among the transgenes.
Where detection method protocols and appropriate reference material (non-viable, or in certain circumstances, viable) suitable for low-level situation may be obtained:
Relevant links to documents and information prepared by the competent authority responsible for the safety assessment:
Gene stacking in plants can be conferred either through genetic engineering or conventional breeding
A full risk assessment as to food and feed or for processing shall be conducted to plant products carrying stacked genes conferred through genetic engineering or conventional breeding, where the individual traits have no prior approval for direct use as food and feed or processing from the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI)
A desktop or documentary risk assessment on the possible or expected interactions between the genes shall be conducted for stacked gene products with multiple traits conferred through conventional breeding and individual events granted prior approval by the Bureau of Plant Industry.
