Russia: GOR Resolution 770 Amends Rules for Registration of GE Organisms

Government Resolution No. 770 of June 29, 2017 amends Russia’s framework of rules for the registration of GE organisms and products derived or containing such organisms. The Resolution conforms to Federal Law No 358 of July 3, 2016, which bans cultivation and breeding of GE plants and animals within the territory of the Russian Federation. The previous framework, based on Government Resolution No. 839 of September 23, 2013, would have allowed the possibility of registering GE crops and animals for cultivation and breeding beginning July 1, 2017.
