ACRE Annual Report 2010 – Number 17
This report covers ACRE’s activities in 2010. Once again, the majority of our work on applications for commercial release or import of GM crops has been carried out under Regulation (EC) No. 1829/2003 with EFSA taking the lead role. However, ACRE gave positive assessments on two applications to trial GM potatoes under Part B of Directive 2001/18/EC, from the University of Leeds (evaluating resistance to potato cyst nematodes) and the Sainsbury Laboratory (evaluating resistance to potato late blight). Consent for the Leeds trial was issued on 27th March and the Sainsbury Laboratory trial on 18th May. ACRE also published advice on applications to market three varieties of carnation modified for petal colour and herbicide tolerance.
