Scientific Opinion on an application by Dow Agrosciences LLC (EFSA-GMO-NL-2009-68) for placing on the market of cotton 281-24-236 3 3006-210-23 3 MON 88913 for food and feed uses, import and processing under Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003.

Abstract

The Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms of the European Food Safety Authority (GMO Panel) previously assessed the three single events combined to produce a three-event stack cotton 281-24-236 9 3006-210-23 9 MON 88913 and did not identify safety concerns. In this opinion, the GMO Panel assesses only the three-event stack cotton. No new data on the single events, leading to modification of the original conclusions on their safety, were identified. The combination of cotton events 281-24-236, 3006-210-23 and MON 88913 in the three-event stack cotton did not give rise to issues – based on the molecular, agronomic, phenotypic or compositional characteristics – regarding food and feed safety and nutrition. The combination of the newly expressed proteins in the threeevent stack cotton did not raise concerns for human and animal health. Considering the introduced traits and the outcome of the comparative analysis, the routes of exposure and limited exposure levels, the GMO Panel concludes that this three-event stack cotton would not raise safety concerns in case of accidental release of viable cottonseeds into the environment. The post-market environmental monitoring plans provided by the applicant are in line with the scope of the three-event stack cotton. No post-market monitoring of food/feed derived from the three-event stack cotton is considered necessary. The GMO Panel concludes that the three-event stack cotton is as safe and as nutritious as its conventional counterpart in the context of its scope.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
