Research report 'Analysis of the European legislation on genetically modified organisms'

22 December 16


Ameco prepared a research report commissioned by the COGEM (the Netherlands Commission on Genetic Modification) about European legislation with regard to genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The European legislation on GMOs is perceived by many to be complicated. COGEM considers an understanding of the regulatory environment is essential for carrying out an informed debate and substantive dialogue and therefore requested Ameco to draw up an analysis of the EU legislation.


In the report the background, purpose and scope of the European legislation is presented. The report also includes a discussion of the history of the GMO regulations, the problems within current practice and the expected effects of the new (EU) Directive 2015/412. The report is published on the COGEM website, click here.
