- Sustained imports of protein-rich GM crops are central for the EU feed value chain. Delays in the authorisation process may result in trade disruptions and uncertainty for value chain operators.
- GM crops have a long history of safe use. To be authorised on the EU market they undergo strict assessment by EFSA on any possible risks posed to human and animal health, as well as to the environment.
- CropLife Europe calls for an efficient and timely authorisation process for the import of GM crops into the EU, respecting legally foreseen deadlines.
