Regulation on genetically modified food and feed

Publicado em Legislação, Ecologia e Proteção Ambiental categoria

The European Union has established directives and regulation on the production of genetically modified food. 

The legal documents aim to: 

  • Protect human and animal health and the environment

  • Introduce a safety assessment of the highest possible standards 

  • Ensure efficient, time-limited and transparent procedures for risk assessment 

  • Ensure clear labelling of GMOs placed on the market

  • Ensure the traceability of genetically modified food placed on the market

 These documents are established as building block of the legislation of genetically modified food: 

  • Directive 2001/18/EC on the deliberate release of GMOs into the environment

  • Regulation (EC) 1829/2003 on genetically modified food and feed

  • Directive (EU) 2015/412 amending Directive 2001/18/EC as regards the possibility for the Member States to restrict or prohibit the cultivation of GMOs in their territory

  • Regulation (EC) 1830/2003 concerning the traceability and labelling of genetically modified organisms and the traceability of food and feed products produced from genetically modified organisms

  • Directive 2009/41/EC on contained use of genetically modified micro-organisms. Regulation (EC) 1946/2003 on transboundary movements of GMOs
