On 10 May 2021, from 13:45-15:45, the ENVI Committee organises the public hearing 'New GM techniques in the food sector: impacts on health and the environment?'

The aim of the hearing is to assess and discuss the potential impacts of new genetic modification techniques on health and the environment together with four experts in the field, who will participate remotely. The hearing will address the use of new genomic techniques in plants, animals and microorganisms in the agri-food sector. Special attention will be given to the ECJ ruling of 2018 which concluded that genome edited products, as well as other new GMOs, fall within the scope of EU GMO legislation.
