EU Commission authorises import of GM rape GT73

The European Commission has authorised the genetically modified oilseed rape GT73 for import and processing as animal feed. The authorisation is complemented by a recommendation to Monsanto on how to deal with accidental spillage if it should occur. 13 member states had voted against the approval, 6 in favour and 6 abstained. In June the Commission had to repeal an initial version of this authorisation for legal reasons.</p><p><a href="http://europa.eu.int/rapid/pressReleasesAction.do?reference=IP/05/1077&format=HTML&aged=0&language=EN&guiLanguage=en">Press release: GMOs: Commission authorises import of GM-oilseed rape for use in animal feed</a></p><p><a href="http://www.foeeurope.org/press/2005/HH_31_August_gmo.htm">Friends of the Earth: European Commission opens door to genetic contamination</a></p><p><a href="http://www.saveourseeds.org/dossier/fact_sheet_GT73.htm">Background: SOS Dossier on GT73</a></p><p><a href="http://www.gmo-free-regions.org/Downloads/nature_e_progres_1sept05.pdf">Nature et progres: Un non-sens environnemental, un non-sens économique (Fr)</a>
