PLENARY SESSION II - ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT AND REGULATION OF GENE EDITED PRODUCTS
Session Organizers: Heidi Mitchell, Office of the Gene Technology Regulator, Australia and Joerg Romeis, Agroscope, Switzerland

Speaker: DR. JEFF WOLT, Professor Emeritus of Agronomy at Iowa State University
“Current Environmental Risk Assessment for Genetically Modified Organisms and Implications for Gene Edited Products”
Genome editing allows very precise alterations of genomes and the first products have already been commercialized. This session will address the challenges these products pose to regulators and risk assessors. In particular, we are interested in how genome edited organisms differ from those developed by conventional breeding or genetic engineering. The session will address how genome editing helps to derive desired traits, whether existing regulations are fit-for purpose to deal with such products and how problem formulation can support the risk assessment.
