Deliberate Release and Placing on the EU Market of GMOs - GMO Register
According to Article 9 of Council Directive 90/220/EEC (see Official Journal
of the European Commission, L 117 of 8 May 1990), the Competent Authorities
of the Member States of the European Union send to the European Commission
(Joint Research Centre - Ispra) a summary of each notification (SNIF)
Two formats for this summary have been established by the Commission and
are described in the Commission Decision 94/211/EC of 15 April 1994
amending Council Decision 91/596/EEC concerning the summary notification
information format referred to in Article 9 of Council Directive 90/220/EEC
(see Official Journal of the European Commission, L 105/26 of 26 April
1994). Part 1 describes the format to be used for releases of genetically
modified higher plants, and Part 2 the format to be used for releases
of genetically modified organisms other than higher plants.
The European Commission distributes the notifications for information
to all Member States, Norway and Iceland.
Here we provide you with an overview of all notifications
circulated so far among Member States since the implementation date of
Directive 90/220/EEC (21 October 1991).
On your left-hand side you will find an index which allows
you to navigate through the information available which is split in three
parts: the first one refers to the total number of summaries by country,
genetically modified higher plants and genetically modified organisms
other than higher plants. The second one gives you general information
(common name, main trait, notifier and notification number) grouped by
country and the third one indicates the taxonomy of all plants notified
to the Commission up to-date.
