European Union: European Commission Authorizes 8 GE Crops for Import

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On January 22, 2021, the European Commission (EC) approved five genetically engineered (GE) crops (three corn and two soybeans) and renewed the authorization for three corn crops used for food and feed. The EC approves groups of events twice a year - during the December holiday season and in midsummer. These were the eight events remaining at the end of last year that were not yet authorized by the Commission. The eight authorizations and renewals were published in the European Union’s Official Journal on January 26, 2021, and they remain valid for 10 years.
