Products (1) Foods and food ingredients containing, consisting of, or produced from MON-89Ø34-3×DAS-Ø15Ø7-1×MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maize;
(2) Feed containing, consisting of, or produced from MON-89Ø34-3×DAS-Ø15Ø7-1×MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maize;
(3) Products, other than food and feed, containing or consisting of MON-89Ø34-3×DAS-Ø15Ø7-1×MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maize for the same uses as any other maize with the exception of cultivation.
Designation The genetically modified maize MON-89Ø34-3×DAS-Ø15Ø7-1×MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maize, as described in the application, is produced by crosses between maize containing MON-89Ø34-3, DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 and MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 events and expresses the Cry1A.105, Cry2Ab2, Cry1F proteins which confer protection against certain lepidopteran pests such as the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) and species belonging to the genus Sesamia, the PAT protein which confers tolerance to the glufosinate-ammonium herbicide, and the CP4 EPSPS protein which confers tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide.
Labelling (1) For the purposes of the labelling requirements laid down in Articles 13(1) and 25(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 and in Article 4(6) of Regulation (EC) No 1830/2003, the 'name of the organism' shall be 'maize'.

(2) The words 'not for cultivation' shall appear on the label of and in documents accompanying products containing or consisting of MON-89Ø34-3×DAS-Ø15Ø7-1×MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maize referred to in Article 2(b) and (c).
Method for detection - Event specific real-time quantitative PCR based methods for quantitative detection of genetically modified MON-89Ø34-3, DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 and MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maizes validated on the single-trait events and verified on MON-89Ø34-3xDAS-Ø15Ø7-1xMON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maize.
