Author(s): Moeen F. Dababneh

 The use of genetically modified organisms in food manufacturing in the course of growing agricultural produce is considered an efficient method to raise the yield and increase the amounts of the grown crops. This is of special importance for agricultural crops manufacturers in terms of increasing their profits. Nevertheless, regardless of the obvious advantages, the use of such organisms is not always safe for life and health of humans as well as the environment in general.

In legislative acts, the issue of genetically modified organisms is treated with particular attention within the context of the international integration processes due to the present-day acute problem of state regulation of development and use of genetically modified organisms. As a result, the constant increase in the areas sowed with genetically modified plants and the spread of biotechnologies all over the world is currently observed.

In this connection, the analysis of legal framework concerning the issues of legal support for genetically modified organisms in crops production is of utmost importance for consequent forming of an efficient management system.
