National surveillance program for genetically modified food

Page last updated: 21 November 2016

In 2012, a national survey undertaken on behalf of ISFR, was commenced in order to assess the level of industry compliance with Standard 1.5.2 Food Produced Using Gene Technology. The survey assessed 183 samples from 115 businesses, with specific focus on foods containing corn and soy as these represent the predominant Genetically Modified (GM) crops grown worldwide.
The purpose of the survey was to look at the methods and processes businesses have in place to demonstrate their compliance with GM labelling requirements of the Code and to guide and assist jurisdictions in determining the focus of future monitoring and surveillance of GM food in the Australian food supply.
