Result of the decision
  • Approval of the import/use of the LMO(s) with conditions
Conditions
some confinement measures:
• fertile plant material must be carried in closed and clearly marked repositories; during transport any loss and spillage shall be avoided
• genetically modified oilseed rape seeds may be stored outside a laboratory only if stored in a closed and marked container. Inspection and control authorities must be informed about the storage site.
• during the field trial, control of release site and surrounding area at least once a week, irregularities shall be documented
• pollen compatible plants with a overlapping flowering period compared to the genetically modified oilseed rape plants must be eliminated within an distance of 50 m before seed maturity
• no cultivation of Cruciferae on this site for at least 5 years. In case of more than 5 gm-plants per 150 qm cultivated area in the last year of monitoring, the oilseed cultivation is interrupted 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/establishment.
Does the decision involve field trials?
Yes
Does the decision involve commercial release?
No
