Genetic ID has been designated as a Foreign Official Laboratory for GMO testing of food products exported from the United States to Korea by the South Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS). This designation allows a Genetic ID certificate of analysis to be substituted for GMO testing inspection at the Korean border for agricultural products, processed foods, health functional foods, and food additives.
Genetic ID’s status as a Foreign Official Laboratory expedites the inspection process for food products at the destination port. When food products are imported into Korea, the laboratory test certificate issued by a Foreign Official Laboratory can be presented at the time of import declaration. In this case, an importer can be exempted from additional laboratory testing in Korea.
