Public consultations on GM food & feed authorisation applications

Public consultations on GM food & feed authorisation applications

Before a GMO can be approved, the public has 30 days to comment:

After the consultation, the Commission sends the comments received for the applications submitted under Directive 2001/18/EC directly to the lead competent authority for analysis. Scientific comments received for the applications submitted under Regulation (EC) 1829/2003 are sent to EFSA who checks their impact on the EFSA scientific opinion.
