 The application of the precautionary principle in genetically engineered feed (GM), especially those with new characteristics such as resistance to pests, diseases, herbicides, or product quality improvement is produced through genetic engineering technology. In principle, the management and utilization of GM feed and feed ingredients is carried out through a precautionary approach. In this regard, it is necessary to have a risk assessment system. In 2005, the Ministry of Environment (KLH) has issued Government Regulation No. 21 of 2005 concerning the Biosafety of Genetically Engineered Products. In its implementation, Government Regulation Number 21 of 2005 is based on a precautionary approach in order to realize environmental security, food and feed security by considering religious, ethical, socio-cultural and aesthetic principles as well as preservation. This precautionary approach is in accordance with the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety which Indonesia has ratified with Law Number 21 of 2004 concerning Ratification of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety.
