1 May 1998: NOVEL FOODS - EC Regulation on Labelling of Genetically Modified

MAFF/DoH Letter 1 May 1998

EC Regulation on Labelling of Genetically Modified Soya and Maize

Following discussions, some changes have been made to the proposed controls:

The proposal will now be discussed at COREPER on 8 May in preparation for a final consideration at the Internal Market Council on 18 May. The Commission is still reflecting on the discussion but has not so far indicated that it is prepared to offer any amendments. The European Parliament is also considering the matter on 15 May. The choice at this stage is therefore very limited: the Commission proposal as it stands or modified in line with the Presidency amendments if agreed unanimously by the Council.
