Current status of GMO cultivation applications in the EU

Current status of GMO cultivation applications in the EU
===========================

GM crops cultivation pipeline
This overview shows the current applications of GE plant events for EU cultivation as listed in the EFSA database at
http://is.gd/Yn5oxr (last access on 20th November 2014).
Events with finalized EFSA risk assessment report can be put forward to the Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCOFAH) anytime.

The first group of 8 crops are those currently in the pipeline, and which must be named by member states which wish to ask for derogations from any forthcoming EC consents for cultivation.
The second group deals with "withdrawn events" including corn NK603 -- the developers have presumably found them to be either unstable or actually dangerous (NB that NK603 was the variety tested by the Seralini group and found to be toxic to rats in the paper published in 2012, retracted by the journal publishers, and then republished in 2014.)
The group of authorisations no longer valid include T25 corn and Bt176 corn and the Amflora potato -- all three have been hugely controversial.
