Summary of the safety assessment (food safety):
Risk analysis of genetically modified soybeans it is possible to conclude that soybean GTS 40-3-2 x A5547-127 in the commercial release process is safe. The data presented in the majority request for soybean GTS 40- 3-2 x A5547-127 comply with the rules and legislation in force that aim to guarantee the biosafety of the environment, agriculture, human and animal health, and allow us to conclude that soybean GTS 40- 3 -2 x A5547-127 is substantially equivalent to conventional soy, and its consumption is safe for human and animal health. With regard to the environment, it can be concluded that the genetically modified subcombinations are not potentially the cause of significant degradation of the environment, maintaining an identical relationship with the biota as with conventional soy.
Where detection method protocols and appropriate reference material (non-viable, or in certain circumstances, viable) suitable for low-level situation may be obtained:
Molecular traditional methods.

Country introduction:

Brazil had the first biosafety law approved in 1995. After the identification of the need to improve the biosafety system of Brazilian genetically modified organisms, a new law was published. The Law 11.105 / 05 establishes a technical committee dedicated to the analysis of the safety aspects of genetically modified organisms and a council of ministers that is dedicated to the analysis of the socioeconomic aspects of the commercial release of genetically modified organisms. In this context, Brazil already has several commercial products that involve genetically modified organisms (plants, human and veterinary vaccines, microorganisms for fuel production) and products derived from new genetic modification techniques.

Stacked events:

At the discretion of, and upon consultation with, CTNBio, a new analysis and issuance of technical opinion may be released on GMOs containing more than one event, combined through classic genetic improvement and which have been previously approved for commercial release by CTNBio
