EU Commission authorises import of GM rape GT73

The European Commission has authorised the genetically modified oilseed rape GT73 for import and processing as animal feed. The authorisation is complemented by a recommendation to Monsanto on how to deal with accidental spillage if it should occur. 13 member states had voted against the approval, 6 in favour and 6 abstained. In June the Commission had to repeal an initial version of this authorisation for legal reasons.</p><p><a href="">Press release: GMOs: Commission authorises import of GM-oilseed rape for use in animal feed</a></p><p><a href="">EurActiv: European Commission approves GT73 amid safety doubts</a></p><p><a href="">Background: SOS Dossier on GT73</a>
