Ukraine: Biotechnology and Other New Production Technologies Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UP2021-0038

The biotechnology regulatory system in Ukraine is still not fully developed, but the country has committed to shape its policy in line with European Union’s regulations. Political debate over agricultural biotechnology is active in Ukraine. Currently, there are no genetically engineered (GE) events officially approved for agricultural and food production and therefore no GE products can be legally imported into Ukraine. The Government of Ukraine does not permit cultivation of GE crops, however there are reports of illegal GE production for certain crops.
