Since 2011, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has implemented combined difference and equivalence testing of agronomic, phenotypic, and composition data in the risk assessment of genetically modified crops. A short perspective is provided on misunderstandings that have shown up in published criticisms of the approach to equivalence testing, different viewpoints regarding the questions to be answered, and new developments in statistical modeling.
