EU/Argentina agree extension in WTO GMO case

Argentina has agreed to another extension to the EU’s deadline to comply with a WTO ruling on commercialising genetically modified crops in Europe. The deadline, previously for the end of 2009, has been extended to February 28th 2010. Argentina, along with Canada and the US, won a WTO ruling in 2006 ordering the EU to stop delays in registering GM crops and lift national bans on EU-approved crops by November 2007 ( Agrow No 505, p 12). The European Commission has had to repeatedly negotiate extensions to the deadline because it has been unable to lift Austria’s bans on two GM maize lines. The EU reached a final settlement with Canada on the issue last year ( Agrow No 572, p 11).
