Parlement européen : Question P-001392/2019 de James Nicholson (ECR) sur la directive applicable aux OGM

Niveau juridique : Union européenne

Texte de la réponse

« In July 2018, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that organisms obtained by mutagenesis, a kind of new breeding technique, are genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and are subject to the obligations laid down in the GMO Directive. This judgment has led to much confusion about what is considered a GMO and what is not. It also raises the concern of the fact that GMO-free labelling is disingenuous.

1. What steps is the Commission taking to ensure that consumers are not misled by GMO-free labelling claims?

2. Is it reviewing GMO-free labelling claims in light of the recent CJEU judgment? »
