Report on the "International scientific workshop on plant authentication methods of Basmati rice"
The international workshop on Basmati
DNA-based authentication methods was held on 21-22 September
2009. The workshop was organised with a view to implementing an
authentication method related to the distinction of Basmati rice
eligible for import duty exemption from other rice varieties.
The aim of the workshop was to discuss whether the method under
development by JRC-IRMM is the most appropriate one for that
purpose. A further objective was to achieve a clear
understanding of appropriate designs for plant authentication
methods and the scientific/technical requirements related to
their validation. The conclusions and opinions presented in this
report are those of the consultants and do not necessarily
reflect the opinion of the European Commission.
