On June 29, 2017, the Government of the Russian Federation issued Resolution No. 770 “On Amending the Resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 839 of September 23, 2013”. The Resolution conforms to Federal Law No. 358 of July 3, 2016, which bans cultivation and breeding of genetically engineered (GE) plants and animals within the territory of the Russian Federation. With respect to registration of GE products, the requirements for registration of feed are often more rigorous than the registration for food. Currently there are no methodological guidelines for registration of stacked events, making it impossible for those events to be registered.
