Abstract Risk assessment by a competent authority should precede the release of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into the environment and food chain. Capacity building to ensure comprehensive risk assessment is a major challenge for governments especially those in developing countries. Access to scientifically verified biosafety information is an obvious field for international cooperation that several online initiatives are seeking to address. The Biosafety Files described here is a new Dutch contribution to risk assessment capacity.
