Risk assessment of genetically engineered plants that can persist and propagate in the environment

Paper Bauer-Panskus, A., Miyazaki, J., Kawall, K. et al. Risk assessment of genetically engineered plants that can persist and propagate in the environment. Environ Sci Eur 32, 32 (2020). https://doi.org/10.1186/s12302-020-00301-0

Fragment abstract:


“New challenges arise in risk assessment when genetically engineered (GE) plants can persist and propagate in the environment as well as produce viable offspring. Next generation effects can be influenced by heterogeneous genetic backgrounds and unexpected effects can be triggered in interaction with environmental conditions. Consequently, the biological characteristics of the original events cannot be regarded as sufficient to conclude on hazards that may emerge in following generations. Potential hazards identified by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) include exacerbating weed problems, displacement and even extinction of native plant species.”

Parliament opposes plans to authorise four herbicide-resistant GMOs

14-11-19: “Parliament today opposed the Commission’s plans to authorise the import of products containing four glyphosate and glufosinate ammonium resistant GMOs.Source (Pdf) and here (website) ENVI

Envi committee chair of European Parliament: We’ve just rejected new GMOs by a large majority. The European Commission must include in the #greendeal a change to its practices and stop authorising GMOs despite the lack of a majority in the Council (of Ministers) & the Parliament.” Tweet GmWatch

New global threat from GMOs

@GMWatch: “There’s an enormous new threat you probably don’t know much about. Not climate chaos, dying oceans, depleted soils, or widespread chemical pollution. If we magically reverse all of these problems, we may still lose the natural world we cherish.gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/19219…#gmo

Urgent message for all Australians

Latest news:

Senator RICE (Victoria) (15:30): I move: That the Gene Technology Amendment (2019 Measures No. 1) Regulations 2019, made under the Gene Technology Act 2000 , be disallowed [F2019L00573].

Division: NOES 42 (29 majority) AYES 13 PAIRS 0

Forwarded message:

Thanks so much if you contacted your Senators to demand they ensure that all genetically modified organisms (GMOs) continue to be assessed for safety. The Senate will vote on the issue this Wednesday (13th) and Labor Party support will be vital. Unfortunately, the Shadow Health Minister Chris Bowen has said Labor won’t support the Greens disallowance motion – and we need to change this.

Can you give him a call on 02 6277 4822?

Alternatively you can send him a tweet

Or message him on his Facebook page

The organic industry and the European Network of Scientists for Social and Environmental Responsibility last week joined the growing number of voices warning of the potentially disastrous consequences of these regulatory changes. They mean that new GM techniques such as CRISPR can be used in our environment and food chain with no requirement for safety assessment or traceability.

Please tell Chris to regulate CRISPR!

Thanks so much for your support,
Louise Sales
