Member States should be able to ban or restrict the cultivation of GMOs

The European Parliament today adopted a report which allows Member States to ban or restrict the use of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) on environmental and agricultural grounds (eg. pesticide resistance, the invasiveness of certain crops and threat to biodiversity). The final report drafted by ALDE MEP Corinne Lepage (CAP 21, France), maintains a common EU authorisation framework of rules that will apply to all Member States seeking more legal certainty when exercising their freedom to decide on GMO crop cultivation. It means that Member States may adopt measures restricting or prohibiting the cultivation of GMOs on their territory in accordance with EU legislation.
