Peru to impose GMO moratorium

The Peruvian government is seeking a moratorium on the import of genetically modified seed until 2014. The Minister of the Environment, Antonio Brack, is “soon to issue the Agricultural Biosafety Regulation”, anticipating the suspension of all imports. Mr Brack says that a minimum-period moratorium is needed to allow time to establish bodies to regulate GM products and implement a laboratory system to supervise them. The regulation was developed by the Minstries of the Environment, Agriculture and the national institute for agrarian research, the INTA.
