United Arab Emirates: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (GCC-4), covered by Office of Agricultural Affairs in Dubai, permit the importation of genetically engineered (GE) food products of plant origin. Additionally, GCC-4 countries have established several technical regulations that require labeling for both raw and further processed food and feed that may contain GE plant products. These regulations have yet to be enforced. Finally, genetic engineering in animals and related products are not permitted for production or importation in the GCC-4.
