EU Commissions guidelines on co-existence published and criticised

EU Agricultural Commissioner Franz Fischler published guidelines for the development of strategies and best practices to ensure the co-existence of genetically modified (GM) crops with conventional and organic farming. They are intended to help Member States to develop workable measures for co-existence in conformity with EU legislation. "Measures should be efficient and cost-effective, without going beyond what is necessary to comply with EU threshold levels for GMO labelling," the Commission states. Member States and organisations criticised the Commissions approach to impose GMO planting while leaving the question how to cope with the consequences to the member states. Ag ministers will discuss the guidelines and approach in September.<a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/guidelines_en.pdf">Commissions co-existence guidelines</a><br><a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/gp_eeb_foe_guidelines_230703.pdf">Greenpeace, FOE, EEB press release</a><br><a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/zsl_guidelines_22_07_03.pdf">assessment of the foundation on future farming, zs-l</a><b>Koexistenz-Leitlinien der EU Kommission unter Beschuss</b><a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/guidelines_de.pdf">Leitlinien der Kommission auf Deutsch</a><br><a href="http://www.verbraucherministerium.de/presse-woche-2003/PM-184-2003.htm">Presseerklärung Ministerin Künast</a><br><a href="http://www.neue-oz.de/information/noz_print/interviews/sonnleitner.html">Sonnleitner befÃ_rchtet Klagewelle</a><br><a href="http://www.tagesschau.de/aktuell/meldungen/0,1185,OID2083326_TYP6_THE_NAVSPM11172_REF2,00.html">tagesschau.de : Gentechnik: Sonnleitner und BUND kritisieren EU-Leitlinie</a><br><a href="http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/0,1518,258535,00.html">SPIEGEL ONLINE: EU-Vorhaben: Gen-Saat neben Bio-Acker</a><br><a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/guidelines_presse_d.pdf">Deutsche Presse Zusammenfassung</a><br><a href="http://europa.eu.int/rapid/start/cgi/guesten.ksh?p_action.getfile=gf&doc=IP/03/1096-0-RAPID&lg=DE&type=PDF">Presseerkärung der Kommission auf Deutsch</a><br><a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/guidelines_Fischler.pdf">Presse-Statement von Kommissar Fischler</a><br><a href="http://www.zs-l.de/gmo/downloads/graefe_guidelines_230703.pdf">Presseerklärung der Grünen im Europaparlament</a><br><a href="http://www.fr-aktuell.de/ressorts/wirtschaft_und_boerse/wirtschaft/?sid=d6df156c40fa80120630fa3fa6e2f6d0&cnt=259049">FR Kommentar: Dreiklassenlandwirtschaft</a><br><a href="http://www.bdp-online.de/index.php?ebene1=BDP%20PRESSEMELDUNGEN&ebene2=Pressearchiv&datei=presse_2003_07_14.php">Bund Deutscher Pflanzenzüchter zufrieden, gegen gesetzliche Regelungen</a>
