Abstract: Enforcement of European Union legislation on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) requires the availability of reliable, sensitive, specific methods and their harmonized application. The European Union Reference Laboratory for GM Food and Feed (EURL GMFF) at the JRC has developed a series of technical approaches to enable the implementation of an analytically demanding but operational legal framework. These include a freely accessible database called “GMOMETHODS”, for providing a state-of-the-art catalogue of verified and standardized methods for GMO analysis, a dynamic matrix-based web-application called JRC GMO-Matrix for efficiently preparing and evaluating GMO screening strategies, and ready-to-use pre-spotted plates as a multi-target tool to drastically decrease the laboratory workload. These approaches are globally available and can be considered as an important contribution for worldwide standardization and harmonization in GMO analysis.
