This is an European Citizens' Initiative.


Directive 2001/18/EC is outdated. We as students of Life Sciences consider it important to revise the current exemption mechanism stipulated in the Directive, with regards to new plant breeding techniques (NPBTs). Specifically we demand for more legal clarity and further definitions. Our objective is to facilitate the authorization procedure for those products obtained through NPBTs, which carry only natural existing traits. The aim is to improve scientific progress in the European Union while protecting human and animal health and the environment.

Thank you for your support, Lavinia SCUDIERO
