Products (1) foods and food ingredients containing, consisting of, or produced from genetically modified maize (Zea mays L.) referred to in the "unique identifier" row;
(2) feed containing, consisting of, or produced from genetically modified maize (Zea mays L.) referred to in the "unique identifier" row;
(3) genetically modified maize (Zea mays L.) referred to in the "unique identifier" row in products containing them or consisting of them for uses other than those provided for in points (1) and (2), with the exception of cultivation.
Designation MON-87427-7 maize expresses CP4 EPSPS protein, which confers tolerance to glyphosate-based herbicides.
MON-89Ø34-3 maize expresses the Cry1A.105 and Cry2Ab2 proteins, which confer protection against certain lepidopteran pests.
MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 maize expresses CP4 EPSPS protein and the variant CP4 EPSPS L214P, which confer tolerance to glyphosate-based herbicides.
Labelling (1) For the purposes of the 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';
(2) The words 'not for cultivation' shall appear on the label of and in the accompanying documents of the products containing or consisting the maize specified with their unique identifiers, with the exception of foods and food ingredients.
Method for detection - The quantitative event-specific PCR detection methods for maize MON-87427-7 × MON-89Ø34-3 × MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 are those validated for genetically modified maize events MON-87427-7, MON-89Ø34-3 and MON-ØØ6Ø3-6.
