CropLife Europe’s Position Paper on the use of New Genomic Techniques in plants

  • New Genomic Techniques (NGTs) can contribute to the Green Deal objectives by enabling and accelerating the development of resilient plant varieties for sustainable food production.
  • In the EU, the regulatory framework for NGT products is not fit for purpose. The current rules hinder the development and availability of NGT products for European farmers, and negatively impact EU innovation and competitiveness.
  • CropLife Europe calls on the European Commission and EU policymakers to drive forward an enabling and science-based regulatory framework for plants developed through NGTs by establishing a process to determine their regulatory status on a case-by-case basis.
