PARLEMENT EUROPEEN 13/10/15 Huit choses à savoir sur les OGM

L'Union européenne a mis en place des règles strictes sur la culture et la commercialisation de ces produits. Depuis avril, chaque État membre peut décider s'il souhaite autoriser ou non la culture d'OGM sur son territoire. En ce qui concerne la commercialisation pourtant, la commission de l'environnement s'est entendue sur une approche différente. Découvrez dans notre article huit choses à savoir sur les OGM.

EUROPE 24/04/15 Commission authorises 17 GMOs for food/feed uses and 2 GM carnations. The Commission today adopted 10 new authorisations for Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) for food/feed use, 7 renewals of existing authorisations and also the authorisation for the importation of 2 GMO cut flowers (not for food or feed).

EUROPE 24/04/15 Commission authorises 17 GMOs for food/feed uses and 2 GM carnations

These GMOs had gone through a full authorisation procedure, including a favourable scientific assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The authorisation decisions do not cover cultivation. The GMOs approved today had received "no opinion" votes from Member States in both the Standing and Appeal Committees, since no qualified majority either in favour or against was expressed. The Commission adopted these pending decisions, as required by the current GMO legal framework.Authorisations were not granted during the past months whilst a review of the decision making procedure on GMO authorisations was ongoing. All the GMOs approved today have been proved to be safe before their placing on the EU market. For more information: COMMISSION EUROPEENNE 22/04/15 More freedom for Member States to decide on the GMOs use for food & feed.

Today the Commission presents the outcome of its review of the decision-making process for the authorisation of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) as food and feed.

COMMISSION EUROPEENNE 22/04/15 More freedom for Member States to decide on the GMOs use for food & feed

This review derives from the Political Guidelines presented to the European Parliament in July 2014, on the basis of which this Commission was elected. The review confirms the need for changes that reflect public views and allow national governments to have a greater say on the use of EU-authorised GMOs for animal (feed) or human (food) consumption. As a result of this review, the Commission proposes to amend the legislation to confer upon Member States more freedom to restrict, or prohibit the use of EU-authorised GMOs in food or feed on their territory.

Health and Food Safety Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis said: "I am pleased to deliver on one of the important commitments taken by this Commission, reviewing the legislation on the decision-making process on GMOs. For more information please see:

EUROPE 13/07/10 Questions and Answers on the EU's new approach to the cultivation of GMOs

In March 2010, the European Commission announced that it would come back before the summer break with a proposal on how to combine the EU science-based authorisation system with freedom for Member States to decide on the cultivation of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). The package adopted today delivers on this commitment and complies fully with the position set out by President Barroso in the political guidelines he presented in September 2009.

What are co-existence measures and what does the new Recommendation on co-existence change? The objective of co-existence measures, in areas where GMOs are cultivated, is to avoid the unintended presence of GMOs in other products, preventing the potential economic loss and the impact of traces of GM crops in non-GM crops, such as conventional and organic crops.

The CRL is also responsible for coordinating the application by the national reference laboratories of these methods, and for the provision of scientific and technical assistance to the Commission, especially in cases where Member States contest the results of analyses. With regard to NRLS Member States must designate one or more for the analysis of genetically modified feed and food. A Member State may designate a laboratory situated in another Member State or European Free Trade Association (EFTA) Member and a single laboratory may be the NRL for more than one Member State.

Trois autres États membres ont notifié à la Commission des projets de textes législatifs. Les approches adoptées par les États membres diffèrent au niveau des procédures administratives et des spécifications techniques des mesures de confinement. Ces différences reflètent la diversité régionale des facteurs agronomiques, climatiques et autres qui influencent la probabilité d'une présence fortuite d'OGM dans les cultures non génétiquement modifiées. Afin d'améliorer plus encore l'efficacité des mesures nationales de coexistence, le bureau européen pour la coexistence (ECoB) créé par la Commission met au point, en collaboration avec les États membres, un recueil des meilleures pratiques par type de culture.

EUROPE SCADPLUS - Traçabilité et étiquetage des organismes génétiquement modifiés (OGM) L’Union européenne établit un cadre pour garantir la traçabilité des OGM tout au long de la chaîne alimentaire, y compris dans les produits transformés dans lesquels le mode de fabrication a détruit ou altéré l'ADN génétiquement modifié (ex: des huiles).

Ces règles s’appliquent non seulement aux OGM destinés à l’alimentation mais aussi à ceux qui sont destinés aux cultures (semences). Les objectifs L’Union européenne vise deux objectifs principaux: informer les consommateurs grâce à l’étiquetage obligatoire, leur donnant de fait la liberté de choix; créer un «filet de sécurité» grâce à la traçabilité des OGM à tous les stades de la fabrication et lors de leur mise sur le marché. Ce «filet de sécurité» permet de contrôler l’étiquetage, de surveiller les effets potentiels sur la santé humaine ou l’environnement et de retirer un produit en cas de risque inattendu pour la santé humaine ou pour l’environnement.
