EU - Rules on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and Traceability

4.4 EU Rules on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and Traceability

EU Regulation 1830/2003 concerns the traceability and labelling of GMOs and the traceability of food and feed products produced from GMOs. The Regulation sets out procedures on traceability and labelling of GMOs and products produced from GMOs. The labelling legislation extends the labelling requirements to all food and food ingredients produced from GMOs regardless of the detectable presence of DNA or protein within the final food product. The Regulation requires businesses to transmit and retain information about products that contain  or are produced from GMOs at  all stages of being placed on the market. The Regulation covers the labelling provisions to all genetically modified food or feed which consist of, contain or are produced from GMOs irrespective of whether or not modified DNA or protein was detectable in the food.
