Abstract: 
The EU-RL GMFF has previously validated individually, and declared fit for purpose, the detection methods for the single line soybean events MON 87705 and MON 89788 and has published the corresponding reports (see http://gmo-crl.jrc.ec.europa.eu/StatusOfDossiers.aspx). In line with the approach defined by the ENGL (http://gmo-crl.jrc.ec.europa.eu/doc/Min_Perf_Requirements_Analytical_met...) the EU-RL GMFF therefore has carried out only an in-house verification of the performance of each validated method when applied to DNA extracted from the GM stack MON 87705 x MON 89788 soybean. The hereby reported in-house verification study led to the conclusion that the individual methods meet the ENGL requirements also when applied to DNA extracted from the GM stack MON 87705 x MON 89788 soybean.
