National: Since 1999, Austria banned GM maize and rape seed by invoking Directive 90/220, Article 16. The EU Commission has tried to overrule this Austrian "Ordinance on Genetically Modified Seed", but EU member states backed twice the ban, so that Austria remains a GMO-free zone.
Regional: All 9 Austrian Bundesländer (regions) have declared their intention to remain GMO-free
Municipalities: More then 100 municipalities have signed resolutions to stay GMO-free.
