RADA TO INTRODUCE MECHANISM TO TRACK TURNOVER OF GOODS CONTAINING GMOS

The Ukrainian parliament is intending to introduce a mechanism for tracking the turnover of products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or those produced using GMOs. MPs at first reading on Tuesday approved by 263 votes (out of 299 present at the meeting) a draft law on amending the law on the state biosecurity system when creating, testing, transporting and using genetically modified organisms. According to the document, the procedure of tracking such produce should be open. The amendments to the law foresee that legal entities that introduce such products for the first time have to declare them.
