Issues and Options for the Multilateral Regulation of GM Foods

As genetically modified food commodities have entered markets in recent years, domestic regulators have attempted to manage consumer, environmental and citizen concerns about these new products. One result has been incomplete and at times inconsistent domestic regulation, which has created international conflicts about market access. A number of international institutions have attempted in recent years to bridge the gulf between exporters and importers. This paper reviews recent international developments and offers options for different strategies for reducing the current tensions in international markets.
