Commission seeks to tighten licence conditions for GMOs

The European Commission has outlined its main proposals for revising the 1990 Directive on deliberate release of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Authorisations for GM crops or seeds would be subject to renewal every seven years, and the conditions of renewal would depend on the results of mandatory monitoring of their environmental impact. Meanwhile, Greenpeace has claimed that Commission proposals setting out which food products containing GM soya or maize will require labelling will let 80% of such products through the net.
