EU tenders for study on GMO imports

The European Commission is seeking applicants to carry out a study on the effect on feed imports from asynchronous approvals of genetically modified organisms. The feed industry has long complained about the slow EU GMO registration system, and the practice of rejecting any imports that contain traces of non-EU approved GM crops. EU approvals lag behind those in major exporting countries, thereby restricting supplies of cheap feed, they claim ( Agrow passim). A maximum of €400,000 ($568,000 at the current rate) is available for the ten-month project. The deadline for submissions is September 11th 2009. Details are available at: http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/agriculture/tenderdocs/2009/169967/index_en.htm.
