No change for EU GMO/organic co-existence measures
There is no need to make changes to EU measures designed to keep traces of genetically modified organisms out of organic products, says the European Commission. Instead of proposing specific thresholds for accidental traces of GMOs in organic crops, it would prefer to maintain the 0.9% threshold, which applies to all crops, whether conventional or organic. Similarly, it is too early to make changes to co-existence measures for GM and organic crops. However, the Commission plans to raise certain co-existence issues in a forthcoming debate on EU organic crop legislation.
