In discussions between national experts this month, the authorisation of RoundupReady tolerant rape seed for import as food and feed will be discussed. This meeting will receive little public attention, but will play an important role in deciding whether this GM variety of rape seed will be authorised in the EU. The national experts will meet on March 20th to discuss the authorisation for import of Monsanto’s rapeseed called GT37.
Spanish civil society groups Friends of the Earth Spain, Access Info Europe and Greenpeace have taken legal actions to claim for transparency on GMO cultivation. Spain has been growing GM-crops since 1998 with a complete lack of transparency and control.
Up to now in Spain failed to organise public register for GM fields (as mandatory in the European law 2001/18), so organic and conventional farmers cannot tale measure to protect their fields against contamination with GM crops. Farmers also haven’t any chance to take legal actions when contamination happens.
