Scope of the risk assessment
Risk assessment report / Summary
Methodology and points to consider
Potential adverse effects identified in the risk assessment
negligible, see the attachment
Estimation of the overall risk
In summary, no immediate or delayed adverse effects as a result of the direct and indirect interaction of the genetically modified maize with the environment when compared to non-modified maize have been identified. For detailed information see the attachment.
Recommendation(s)
The field trials will be no less than 200 m from other maize fields and will be surrounded by a border of conventional maize.
The products from the trials may be used for analysis and will not be used for human food or animal feed.
Plant material remaining after harvest will be ground and incorporated into the soil in the trial.
The sites will be monitored for at least one year after the release and any volunteer maize appearing will be eliminated before flowering. During this year, maize will not be grown on the trial sites.
For detailed information see the attachment.
Receiving environment(s) considered
Czech Republic - South Bohemia Region, South Moravia Region, Zlinsky Region
