EU seeks more independent GM crop monitoring

The European Commission is encouraging EU member states to step up independent monitoring of the environmental effects of cultivating genetically modified crops. It is investigating if use can be made of data produced by existing environmental surveillance networks, such as those set up under separate legislation for water quality or pesticides.

Possible approaches to strengthening independent activities were outlined at a Commission conference on environmental monitoring of GM crops in Brussels, Belgium in March.
