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 during transport any loss and spillage shall be avoided. The label needs to distinctively describe the LMO.
- Machines in contact with LMO must be cleaned after use in order to minimize the possibility of unintended loss and spillage of seeds.
- All remaining fertile plant material has to be destroyed by disruption of their germination capacity.
- After the field trial inspection of the release site and the surrounding area [5 m] for transgenic sugar beet volunteers and their manual removal and disposal has to be accomplished. Sugar beet volunteers have to be removed and inactivated before flowering.
- The specification of the exact release site during the inspection period after the field trial must be ensured by appropriate risk measures.
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
