EU Parliament backs Spain on access to GMO data

The European Parliament has supported Spain’s policy on transparency covering the planting of GM maize in the country.  A complaint was lodged in the Parliament objecting to the Ministry of Agriculture’s lack of publicly available data “in order to avoid the carrying out of vandalism” against the crops, the biotechnology association, Fundacion Antama, reports. A resolution was signed in late September noting that “Spain has not infringed any regulations in Directive 2003/4 on public access on environmental information nor in Directive 2003/35 on public participation". The Parliament notes that the location of planted GMOs can be found “through free public access” in a register at the inter-ministerial council on GMOS (CIOMG) through the Ministry of Agriculture.
