The purpose of this paper is to assess the extent of asynchronicity in the authorisations of newgenetically modified organism (GMO) events between importing and exporting countries.Based on the literature, we systemise the GMO regulatory framework and use dissimilarityand stringency indices to assess the regulatory differences. The results show an increase in theasynchronous approval across the majority of country pairs. However, focusing only oncommercialised events and considering only regulatory differences in which the importers aremore stringent than the exporters, the asynchronous approval is considerably lower, and theresult indicates that the major trade leaders have synchronised their approval status for GMOsover time.
