Public consultation on plants produced by certain new genomic techniques.
In the last decades, advances in biotechnology have led to the development of new genomic techniques
(NGTs), i.e. techniques capable of altering the genetic material of an organism that have emerged or have been developed since 2001, when on the deliberate release of genetically Directive 2001/18/EC modified organisms (GMOs) into the environment was adopted.
The Court of Justice of the EU in 2018 clarified that organisms produced by targeted mutagenesis are GMOs subject to the requirements of the EU GMO legislation.
