Prior to the commercial cultivation of GM crops, consumers? concerns regarding their biosafety have also gained momentum. Together with the sustainability of GM crops in agriculture for food safety, biodiversity and biosafety issues are equally important. Thus, efforts to regulate biosafety measures are vigorously made both at the international and national levels. Most of the countries have specific multidisciplinary inter institutional advisory group to evaluate scientific and technical issues associated with the GMOs. These regulatory frameworks ensure comprehensive biosafety assessment of GM crops and administer the enforcement, compliance, accreditation, national and international policy coordination?s through its legal units
