Result of the decision
  • Approval of the import/use of the LMO(s) with conditions
Conditions
some confinement measures:
• storage of seed potatoes isolated from non-gmo potatoes
• isolation distance to non-gmo potato fields: minimum 10 m
• area 10 m surrounding the field trial must be controlled min. 1/month on occurrence of gentically modified potatoes, these must be destroyed.
• frequent control of the field trial minimum 1/week
• fertile plant material must be carried in closed and clearly marked repositories
• machines in contact with LMO must be cleaned after use
• remaining fertile plant material must be destroyed in a way that impedes germination.
• after harvest and in spring of the following year the soil of the release site must be harrowed to 10-20 cm depth, appearing potato tubers must be collected manually and destroyed.
• control of release site and surrounding area for volunteers 1 year after end of experiments, volunteers and tubers have to be destroyed, in case volunteer LMO potatoes appear during the control period this is extended for another year
note: not for food or feed purposes
Reasons
to comply with requirements of Directive 2001/18/EC, Gentechnikgesetz [German Gene Technology Act]:
reduce possibility of GMO spread
Does the decision involve field trials?
Yes
Does the decision involve commercial release?
No
