Brussels, 30th March 2021 – Today, ECVC, together with a broad coalition of 162 civil society organisations, farmers and business organisations, sent an open letter to European Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans, calling on the EU to oppose any weakening of EU GMO regulation. All organisms derived from new genetic engineering techniques must be regulated in accordance with existing EU legislation on GMOs, to ensure a high level of protection and the right of farmers and consumers to choose what they plant and eat.
