The FAO GM Foods Platform is freely accessible for those who want to browse the information. Registration is required for those who need to upload information. Only officially nominated Focal Points can register to the Platform.
One Focal Point per Codex Member is officially nominated by the respective country through its Codex Contact Point. The nominated Focal Point is then invited to register to the Platform. Once his/her registration has been approved, the Focal Point can start uploading the relevant national data and information to the Platform. All the entries will be reviewed by FAO before they will be online.
A monthly newsletter that highlights the latest developments is circulated among Focal Points. The latest version can be found here.
