Peru to issue proposals of GMO rules

Peru is set to introduce proposals for rules governing the use and distribution of genetically modified crops next month, the newswire, SciDev, reports. A commission composed of government departments of interest in the matter is close to agreeing proposals for “public debate”, the Environment Ministry says. They would include measures to detect the illegal planting of GM crops. The Ministry of Agriculture had recently indicated that biosafety rules would be introduced by the end of 2008 ( Agrow No 551, p 19). The Environment Minister, Antonio Brack, is opposed to the use of GMOs and is contemplating “declaring Peru free of GMOs”, SciDev reports. Other parts of the government support the use of the technology, it adds.
