Products 1) Foods and food ingredients containing, consisting of, or produced from MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 × ACS-ZMØØ3-2 maize

2) Feed containing, consisting of, or produced from MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 × ACS-ZMØØ3-2 maize

3) Products other than food and feed containing or consisting of MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 × ACS-ZMØØ3-2 maize for the same uses as any other maize with the exception of cultivation
Designation The genetically modified MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 × ACS-ZMØØ3-2 maize is produced by crosses between maize containing MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 and ACS-ZMØØ3-2 and expresses the pat protein which confers tolerance to the glufosinate-ammonium herbicide and CP4 EPSPS protein which confers tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide.
Labelling For the purposes of the specific labelling requirements laid down in Article 13(1) and Article 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’;

The words 'not for cultivation' shall appear on the label of and in documents accompanying products containing or consisting of MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 × ACS-ZMØØ3-2 maize with the exception of products referred to in point (a) of Article 2.
Method for detection Event-specific real-time quantitative PCR-based methods for MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 and ACS-ZMØØ3-2 maize; the detection methods are validated on the single-trait events and verified on genomic DNA extracted from seeds of MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 × ACS-ZMØØ3-2 maize;
