EU considers proposals to break GMO deadlock

Plans to allow national governments to decide whether to allow genetically modified (GM) crop cultivation on their land could unblock a paralysis in EU GMO approvals, but at the risk of igniting internal market disputes.Proposals from the Dutch and Austrian governments, currently under consideration by the European Commission, have won the backing of several member states, and will be at the top of the new Commission's agenda. If the plans succeed, the proposal could lead to speedier authorization of GM crop varieties. However, some see the plans as fraught with risks and incompatible with the bloc’s internal market laws. They could also ignite a competitive war between GMO producers in different countries and contravene international trade laws.
