Kommissionen tillader import af genmodificeret sukkermajs på dåse på grundlag af nye, strenge mærkningskrav – forbrugerne kan selv vælge

Europa-Kommissionen gav i dag tilladelse til markedsføring af sukkermajs af genetisk modificeret Bt11-majs. Beslutningen gælder i ti år og er rettet til virksomheden Syngenta. Det skal altid klart fremgå af mærkningen, at de importerede dåsemajs er høstet fra genetisk modificerede planter. Det har siden 1998 været tilladt at importere frø af genetisk modificeret Bt11-majs til EU, hvor majsen er meget anvendt i foder[1] og i fødevarer fremstillet heraf[2], som f.eks. majsolie, majsmel, snacks, bagværk, stegte fødevarer, konditorvarer og læskedrikke. Den nye tilladelse gælder specifikt import af sukkermajs på dåse og friske sukkermajs. Det skal af mærkningen klart fremgå, at majsen er en genmodificeret organisme (GMO), i overensstemmelse med den nye EU-lovgivning. En ansøgning om tilladelse til dyrkning af Bt11-majs er ved at blive behandlet, uden at tilladelsen foreligger endnu.

Kommissær for sundhed og forbrugerbeskyttelse David Byrne udtalte: "Genmodificeret sukkermajs har været underkastet verdens strengeste vurdering forud for markedsføringen. Den videnskabelige vurdering er, at den er lige så sikker som konventionel majs. Det er derfor ikke fødevaresikkerhed, det drejer sig om, men derimod forbrugernes valg. Med de nye EU-regler for GMO'er stilles der krav om tydelig mærkning og sporbarhed. Mærkningen sikrer forbrugerne de oplysninger, de skal bruge for at kunne træffe et bevidst valg. Det er således helt op til forbrugerne, hvad de vil købe. Kommissionen handler ansvarligt på grundlag af strenge og klare regler."

Sukkermajs af genmodificeret Bt11-majs vil blive mærket i overensstemmelse med de nye bestemmelser, som Rådet og Europa-Parlamentet har vedtaget i de senere år, og som har været gældende siden den 18. april 2004[3]. Bt11-sukkermajs har i overensstemmelse med internationale retningslinjer været underkastet en tilbundsgående sikkerhedsvurdering af de potentielle skadelige virkninger for folkesundheden. Den er blevet tildelt en entydig identifikator, som sikrer sporbarhed, og som opføres i EF-registret over genetisk modificerede fødevarer og foderstoffer. Tilladelsen gælder i ti år. Det var Kommissionen, der traf beslutningen, som det er påkrævet, når Rådet hverken vedtager eller forkaster Kommissionens forslag.

EU har i løbet af de seneste fire år indført et letforståeligt, gennemskueligt og strengt regelsæt til regulering af genetisk modificerede fødevarer, foderstoffer og planter. Lovgivningen sikrer, at GMO'er, der tillades i EU, ikke udgør en sikkerhedsrisiko for mennesker, og at det er sikkert at udsætte dem i miljøet. Klare mærkningskrav gør det muligt for landbrugerne selv at vælge, hvad de vil dyrke, og for forbrugerne selv at vælge, hvad de vil købe. Det er derfor kun naturligt, at dette sikre system anvendes i praksis. Tilladelser gives på grundlag af de omstændigheder, der gør sig gældende i de enkelte tilfælde, og ansøgninger, der ikke opfylder alle kriterier, vil blive afvist – ligesom de altid er blevet det. De relevante beslutninger træder i kraft den dag, de bekendtgøres for ansøgeren.

NOTER:

Novartis (nu Syngenta) indgav den 11. februar 1999 en ansøgning til de kompetente myndigheder i Nederlandene om tilladelse til at markedsføre sukkermajs af genetisk modificeret Bt11-majs som et nyt levnedsmiddel eller en ny levnedsmiddelingrediens. Majsen er høstet fra en plante, som er genetisk modificeret til at producere Bt-toksin - dette minder om et bakterieproduceret stof, der i mange år har været flittigt anvendt som en naturlig insektgift.

Det kompetente fødevarevurderingsorgan i Nederlandene konkluderede, at Bt11-sukkermajs er lige så sikker som konventionel sukkermajs; en vurdering, som EU's Videnskabelige Komité for Levnedsmidler tilsluttede sig. I den videnskabelige udtalelse fra EU-komitéen fokuserede man på de spørgsmål, der var rejst af medlemsstaternes myndigheder (bl.a. molekylær karakterisering og toksicitetsundersøgelser, som påpeget i udtalelsen fra "Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des aliments" (AFSSA)).

Den metodologi, der blev anvendt ved sikkerhedsvurderingen af Bt11, var ligeledes i overensstemmelse med EU's Videnskabelige Styringskomités seneste retningslinjer for vurdering af GMO'er og genetisk modificerede fødevarer og foderstoffer og med Codex Alimentarius' principper og retningslinjer for fødevarer fremstillet ved anvendelse af bioteknologi.

Europa-Kommissionens Fælles Forskningscenter (FFC) har i samarbejde med Det Europæiske Net af GMO-laboratorier (ENGL) gennemført en komplet valideringsundersøgelse (ringtest) efter internationalt accepterede retningslinjer for at undersøge ydeevnen for en kvantitativ begivenhedsspecifik metode til at påvise og bestemme Bt11-transformationsbegivenheden i sukkermajs. Den validerede metode er blevet udviklet af det nationale veterinærinstitut i Norge og INRA i Frankrig. Såvel metoden som resultaterne af valideringen er blevet offentliggjort.

Sukkermajs af genetisk modificeret Bt11-majs og levnedsmidler, der indeholder sukkermajs af genetisk modificeret Bt11-majs som ingrediens, skal mærkes i overensstemmelse med forordning (EF) nr. 1829/2003 og underkastes de krav til sporbarhed, der er fastsat i forordning (EF) nr. 1830/2003 om sporbarhed og mærkning af genetisk modificerede organismer og sporbarhed af fødevarer og foder fremstillet af genetisk modificerede organismer og om ændring af direktiv 2001/18/EF.

Fra det register, Kommissionen skal oprette i henhold til artikel 28 i forordning (EF) nr. 1829/2003, skal der kunne indhentes oplysninger om identifikationen af sukkermajs af genetisk modificeret Bt11-majs, herunder den validerede påvisningsmetode og referencematerialet, jf. bilaget.

Genetisk modificeret Bt11-majs er blevet anmeldt til clearinginstituttet for biosikkerhed, jf. artikel 11, stk. 1, og artikel 20, stk. 3, litra c), i Cartagena-protokollen om biosikkerhed til konventionen om den biologiske mangfoldighed.

Den Stående Komité for Fødevarekæden og Dyresundhed har ikke afgivet udtalelse. Kommissionen forelagde derfor den 4. februar 2004 Rådet et forslag i henhold til artikel 13, stk. 4, litra b), i forordning (EF) nr. 258/97, jf. artikel 5, stk. 4, i Rådets afgørelse 1999/468/EF, med en anmodning til Rådet om at reagere inden for tre måneder.

Forslaget blev behandlet på samlingen i Rådet (landbrug og fiskeri) den 26. april 2004. Irland, Italien, Nederlandene, Finland, Sverige og UK stemte for, mens Danmark, Grækenland, Frankrig, Luxembourg, Østrig og Portugal stemte imod. Belgien, Tyskland og Spanien undlod at stemme. Eftersom Rådet ikke reagerede inden for den fastsatte frist, vil beslutningen nu blive vedtaget af Kommissionen.

I henhold til forordning (EF) nr. 1830/2003 om sporbarhed og mærkning skal virksomheder videregive og opbevare oplysninger om produkter, der indeholder eller er fremstillet af GMO'er, på hvert enkelt stadium i markedsføringen. Sporbarhed er et middel til at spore produkter, der indeholder eller er fremstillet af GMO'er, i hele produktions- og distributionskæden.

Forordning (EF) nr. 1829/2003 om genmodificerede fødevarer og foderstoffer indeholder krav om omfattende oplysninger via mærkning af alle fødevarer og foderstoffer, der indeholder, består af eller er fremstillet af GMO'er. Alle fødevarer, herunder også soja- og majsolie fremstillet af genmodificeret soja og majs, og fødevareingredienser såsom kiks med majsolie, der er fremstillet af genmodificeret majs, skal mærkes. Produkterne skal være mærket "Dette produkt indeholder genetisk modificerede organismer" eller "fremstillet af genetisk modificeret [organismens navn]".
