EU Commission study on the future of GMOs – What can we expect?

EU must stop wasting time trying to find loopholes to allow these new GMOs onto our fields and plates, says Mute Schimpf, Friends of the Earth Europe

On Friday April 30 2021, the European Commission will publish a study which will have a key influence over whether or not a new generation of genetically modified crops will be exempt from EU safety, traceability and transparency rules.

The study has already attracted controversy. Friends of the Earth Europe has criticised the European Commission for ignoring its own procedures by allowing the biotech industry to dominate the responses to the stakeholder consultation, as well as failing to respect transparency protocols.
