GM soybean decisions returned to EU Commission

The European Commission is free to go ahead with its proposed approvals of four genetically modified soybean lines after an appeal committee in January failed to agree on whether to accept or reject the registrations. The approvals would cover food and feed use, comprising: new approvals for Bayer CropScience’s glufosinate herbicide-tolerant A5547-127 (LibertyLink), DuPont seed subsidiary Pioneer Hi-Bred International’s dual herbicide-tolerant 356043 (Optimum GAT), and Monsanto’s insect-resistant MON87701; and renewal of the approval for Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant 40-3-2 (Roundup Ready).
