EU court annuls Amflora approvals

The EU General Court has annulled the European Commission's decisions of 2010 to grant cultivation and feed use approvals to BASF's genetically modified improved starch Amflora potatoes. The Commission did not follow correct procedures according to EU GMO registration laws, the Court says. The Amflora approval represented the first EU GMO planting authorisation for 12 years, with a new Health and Consumers Commissioner, John Dalli, indicating an end to the stalled registration process (Agrow No 587, p 12). However, BASF halted the commercialisation of Amflora two years later due to continuing political hostility to GM crops in Europe (Agrow No 632, p 2).
