Brief description of the document including objective and scope:
The scope of this opinion of the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL) on the legal classification of new plant breeding techniques is to assess whether organisms developed with the help of so-called "new plant breeding techniques" - in particular the techniques of oligonucleotide-directed mutagenesis (ODM) and CRISPR-Cas9 - fall under the scope of Directive 2001/18/EC. Currently, there is an ongoing discussion throughout the EU as to the legal classification of these organisms.
