Result of the decision
  • Approval of the import/use of the LMO(s) with conditions
Conditions
- Fertile plant material has to be transported and stored in closed and clearly labelled repositories at any time outside the release site and laboratory and has to keep separately from non transgenic plant material. The label needs to distinctively describe the LMO and it needs to be noted that this sugar beet is unfit for consumption (food and feed). All remaining fertile plant material has to be destroyed by disruption of their germination capacity. All machines that have been used on the release site have to be thoroughly cleaned.
- LMO material can be transported to a laboratory for analysis if it is destroyed (disruption of the germination capacity) during following analysis.
- All remaining fertile plant material on the release site has to be destroyed by chopping or application of an herbicide and worked into the soil afterwards.
- After completion of the field trial an inspection of the release site and the surrounding area [5 m] for one year on transgenic sugar beet volunteers, their removal and disposal has to be accomplished during the growing season periodically (at least every 4 weeks). The inspection period has to be extended for another year if sugar beet volunteers were observed. The release site must not be cultivated with plants impairing the detection of transgenic volunteers. Measures must be taken to ensure the localization of the release site during the inspection period.
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
