CropLife Europe’s views on the relevance of information to be submitted to EFSA in support of the GM risk assessment


We believe that it is implicit in the relevant legal provisions that information submitted to EFSA by applicants, as part of the authorisation procedure for GM, must be relevant to the risk assessment. The terms of Articles 9(3) and 21(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 on genetically modified food and feed (“Regulation 1829/2003”) do not require all available information (irrespective of its significance) to be submitted.
