Peru’s ten-year GMO moratorium in force

The Peruvian government has put in place a ten-year moratorium on imports and production of genetically modified crops by passing Law No 29811. The Parliament approved the law in November ( Agrow No 629, p 21) and it was published in the official gazette on December 9th. Regulations defining matters such as offences and penalties are to be put in place within 60 days of that date. The law has been signed by Peruvian President Ollanta Humala Tasso. The outgoing President left the bill in limbo in August when he sent it back to Parliament for reconsideration ( Agrow No 622, p 22). The use of GMOs for research is excluded from the ban.
