Ci vogliono ben 225 pagine per avere una idea di massima di quanto sia complicata la normativa sugli OGM. Si tratta di un utile riassunto per chi volesse approfondire. Vale la pena per pero’ di notare le affermazioni sulla Coesistenza: la coesistenza riguarda solo gli aspetti economici non gli aspetti sanitari o ambientali. L’Unione Europea spiega che tutti devono poter coltivare col sistema che preferiscono.

COEXISTENCE
The cultivation of GMOs in the EU has implications for the organization of agricultural production. On the one hand, the possibility of the unintended presence of GM crops in non- GM crops (conventional and organic), raises the question as to how producer choice for the different production types can be ensured. In principle, farmers should be able to cultivate the types of agricultural crops they choose - be it GM crops, conventional or organic crops. This possibility should be combined with the wish of some farmers and operators to ensure that their crops have the lowest possible presence of GMOs.
The objective of co-existence measures in areas where GMOs are cultivated is to avoid unintended presence of GMOs in other products, preventing the potential economic loss and impact of the admixture of GM and non-GM crops (including organic crops).
Note: coexistence always refers to GMOs that have passed the very strict EU authorization process, including comprehensive assessments of health-related or environmental risks. Therefore, coexistence measures should not concern environmental or health-related risks (management of environmental or health-related risks is addressed during the GMO authorization process). Coexistence measures should concern “only” economic risks (i.e. the potential economic loss and impact of the admixture of GM and non-GM crops).
