Morocco: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

While absent a formal biosafety framework, following guidance published in September, 2012, Morocco adheres to the precautionary principle in respect to justifying a ban on genetically-engineered products from local cultivation and from their presence in products for human consumption while simultaneously recognizing their international presence and acceptance as an animal feed source. Agricultural biotechnology activities remain active but limited largely to research with no developed genetically-engineered products having been commercialized for local production. In trade, Morocco continues to take advantage of agricultural biotechnology resources, particularly to support its development as a competitive livestock and poultry producer.
