REGISTER FOR EC SURVEY ON GM FOOD AND FARMING

DG Environment of the European Commission has recently launched an evaluation of the EU legislative framework in the field of cultivation of GMOs under Directive 2001/18/EC and Regulation (EC) N° 1829/2003, and marketing of uses other than cultivation under Directive 2001/18/EC.

The aim of this technical evaluation is to assess the extent to which the
implementation of the legislative framework on the cultivation and marketing of GMOs has achieved the objective of protecting human and animal health, the environment and consumers' interest, while at the same time ensuring the functioning of the internal market. This exercise is solely technical. It is not linked to and does not imply any particular policy initiative on the part of the Commission.

The evaluation is being carried out by GHK Consulting Ltd, which operates under the European Policy Evaluation Consortium (EPEC). GHK is supported by Technopolis and by a group of experts. The evaluation will be completed by the beginning of 2010.

The GHK project is concerned with GMO cultivation and marketing only. Comments on the implementation of legislative governing GMOs in food and feed applications are out of scope. A separate evaluation of the EU legislative framework in the field of GM food and feed has been launched by DG Health and Consumers (SANCO).
