Singapore: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Singapore does not have any domestic commercial production of plant biotechnology. As of October 2020, a total of 43 genetically engineered (GE) plant products have been approved for use as food or food ingredients in the country (an increase of two compared to the same time the previous year). Singapore’s Genetic Modification Advisory Committee (GMAC) recently revised its regulations on stacked events to adopt the "high covers low" approach which exempts higher order combinations of stacked events from regulatory assessment if they are derived from prior GMAC-endorsed lower order combinations.
