Basic legislation

We have put together an extensive catalogue of the various legislative strands governing the biosciences at the European level. The resources listed below include European Parliament and Council directives and regulations, as well as other related documents such as background, preparatory or explanatory documents related to legislative items (they are available in PDF or HTML formats).

These cover a variety of biosociety-related issues, such as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the labelling of foodstuffs, health and safety aspects, and the protection of intellectual property rights in the biotechnology sector. You will also find details of the European Convention on Biodiversity.
