Scientific Opinion on an application by Bayer CropScience and Monsanto (EFSA-GMO-NL-2009-75) for placing on the market of genetically modified glufosinate-ammonium- and glyphosate-tolerant oilseed rape MS8 3 RF3 3 GT73 and subcombinations, which have not been authorised previously (i.e. MS8 3 GT73 and RF3 3 GT73) independently of their origin, for food and feed uses, import and processing, with the exception of isolated seed protein for food, under Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003

Abstract

The EFSA Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) previously assessed the three single events that are combined to produce the three-event stack oilseed rape (OSR) MS8 3 RF3 3 GT73. In this Scientific Opinion, the GMO Panel assessed the three-event stack OSR and subcombinations that have not been authorised previously (i.e. MS8 3 GT73 and RF3 3 GT73), independently of their origin, for food and feed uses, import and processing, with the exception of isolated seed protein for food. The combination of OSR events, MS8, RF3 and GT73, in the three-event stack OSR does not raise issues relating to molecular, agronomic/phenotypic or compositional characteristics requiring further investigations. In line with previous assessments and considering the scope of this application, the GMO Panel did not find indications of safety concern for food and feed with trace levels of glyphosate oxidoreductase (GOX)v247 protein derived from the three-event stack OSR; whereas, the GMO Panel cannot assess the safety of three-event stack OSR products rich in protein, such as rapeseed protein isolates in feed. As the risk assessment of the three-event stack OSR could not be completed for products rich in protein, such as rapeseed protein isolates, the GMO Panel is not in a position to complete the food and feed safety assessment of subcombinations within the scope of this application (i.e. MS8 3 GT73 and RF3 3 GT73). The two-event stack OSR MS8 3 RF3 is outside the scope of this application. Considering the scope of this application, the mode of action of the introduced traits and the data available for the three-event and two-event stack OSR MS8 3 RF3, the GMO Panel considered that different combinations of the events, MS8, RF3 and GT73, would not raise environmental concerns

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.
