Serbia to modify prohibitive GMO law

Serbia is preparing amendments to a restrictive law on genetically modified organisms that it adopted last year, reports the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). The amendments are expected to be approved by October and would allow importing and growing of GMOs under “strict” control of the state. Last year’s law prohibited all commercial growing of or trade involving GMOs ( Agrow No 571, p 15). The move has come as a result of pressure from the US, the EU and other WTO members, the FAS reports. The amendments would bring Serbian legislation in line with various EU Directives concerning GMOs. The FAS says that currently there is no foreign company engaged in field trials of GM crops in Serbia.
