Member States are responsible for the enforcement of the EU Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) legislation(1).

During the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed on 11 September 2018(2) and the Regulatory Committee on Directive 2001/18 on 18 October 2018(3), the Commission has recalled to national competent authorities of their responsibility to enforce GMO legislation in accordance with the Court of Justice of the European Union’s judgment, including control of products to be placed on the EU market and compliance with GMO legislation of ongoing and future field trials.

These discussions will be pursued as necessary to support the Member States in the implementation of the EU legislation.
