Authorisation maintained for GMO corn

In a notice published on Friday 1st August 2014 and based on the assessment of the scientific documentation presented by France in support of its request for a ban on the cultivation of genetically modified corn MON 810 in the European Union, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) stated that neither the scientific publications cited in the French documentation, nor the arguments presented by France constituted fresh information concerning the risk to human and animal health or the environment, which might invalidate the conclusions of the risk assessment and justify a ban on the cultivation of genetically modified MON 810 in the European Union.
