Detection methods

About Us

CropLife International member companies work together with the global seed production, grain handling and processing value chain entities to provide access to appropriate reference materials and diagnostic methods, and to encourage international standardization and coordination of test proficiency and validation efforts.

The use of reliable, validated, and internationally accepted methods is critical to avoid release of inaccurate test results which can potentially result in disputes and/or regulatory enforcement actions with negative economic impacts on trade.  CropLife International and its member companies therefore promote the implementation of harmonized, practical and science-based laws, regulations or policies for the development, validation, and utilization of detection methods for GM crops.

To achieve these aims, CropLife International established the Detection Methods Expert Team to provide technical expertise and recommendations to CropLife International and its member companies. The team manages the CropLife Detection Methods Database and also develops consensus positions on detection methods related technical issues, provides answers to questions from regulatory agencies and coordinates with other technical groups as appropriate.
