Public consultation on new genetic modification techniques

20 July 2022


Dear Vice President, dear Commissioners,We are writing to express our views on the European Commission’s plan to introduce a separate legislation for genetically modified (GM) plants produced by certain “new genomic techniques”, as set out in the ongoing public consultation [1] and targeted survey for the impact assessment [2].We took note that the Commission’s policy scenarios have not been made public but only released to a select group of individuals via a targeted survey. We consider that this is not the appropriate way to ensure participants to the consultation have access to all relevant information to make an informed answer and call on you to publish this survey without delay
