Global Pipeline Of New Gm Crops

Crop Biotech Update, isaaa.org

The European Union's Joint Research Center (JRC) has released a new report focusing on the "global commercial pipeline of new genetically modified (GM) crops." The publication provides a detailed list of products in the commercial, regulatory and advanced R&D pipelines.

The implications of asynchronous approval of GM crops for international trade are also highlighted in the paper. This asynchronous approval, brought about by the different authorization procedures in different countries, is of growing concern for its potential impact on international trade, especially if countries operate a zero tolerance policy that may result in rejections of imports that contain only traces of such GMOs.

The paper, authored by Alexander J. Stein and Emilio Rodríguez-Cerezo, is available for download
