Measures affecting the approval and marketing of biotech products

Friends of the Earth Europe has today (February 28, 2006) published a leaked copy of the secret draft ruling in the World Trade Organisation (WTO) dispute over GM foods.

The US, Canada and Argentina launched a legal challenge against the EU in May 2003. They claimed that EU measures to protect consumers and the environment from the risks posed by GM food and crops were blocking trade in GM products.

Initial analysis of the report shows that despite claims of victory by the US government and the biotechnology industry, the US-led coalition failed to win many of their arguments against Europe. However, the WTO ruled that national GMO bans are illegal and it is likely that countries with bans in place will be put under renewed pressure to lift them.
