No Qualified Majority on GM Maize 1507 (Extract from: Provisional Version - Agriculture Council 20 September)

September 21, 2005

Brussels, 20 Sep 2005

In the absence of a qualified majority in the Council, the Council was unable to act on the Commission's proposal on maize line 1507 (10785/05).

A notification concerning the placing on the market of a genetically modified maize product (Zea mays L., line 1507) was submitted by Pioneer Hi-Bred International, INC and Mycogen Seeds to the competent authority of the Netherlands (ref C/NL/00/10) earlier this year.

The notification covers importation and use as for any other maize grains including feed, with the exception of cultivation and uses as or in food, in the Community, of varieties derived from the 1507 transformation event.
