New EC proposal on GMOs use for food and feed

The European Commission has adopted a new proposal on the use of EU-authorised GMOs for animal (feed) or human (food) consumption that grants more freedom for Member States to allow or not the use of a particular GMO in their food chain.

This is a new approach that aims to achieve a balance between maintaining an EU-authorisation system, to ensure the same level of protection throughout the EU, and the freedom of Member States.

This legislative proposal will be now sent to the European Parliament and the Council.
