The high market segregation costs associated with the L&T approach will be even more discouraging to GM crop producers in the developing world. Building the costly parallel infrastructure needed to segregate GM from non-GM commodities will not be affordable in much of the developing world, and the sophisticated testing capacity needed to enforce segregation will not be available. The L&T regulation permits only a 1% contamination threshold, even for GMOs that are approved, and the Government of Canada has described this low tolerance level 12 19 as ‘costly and unworkable, particularly from a bulk commodity perspective.
The requirement that commodity handlers specify which GMO varieties were contained in shipments was relaxed to allow operators to specify only what varieties the shipments ‘may contain’. This gives handlers an option to avoid strict market segregation among GM varieties by ‘over-reporting’ what their shipments might contain. Yet they will remain obliged to segregate GM from non-GM if they wish to avoid a GM label (Inside US Trade, 8/3/01, p. 10). 13 In March 2002, the USA successfully blocked an EU effort within a technical group meeting to consider minimal shipping documentation needed to accompany trans-boundary movements of GMO commodities.
These concerns led separate EU governments, and then finally EU authorities in Brussels, to place an informal moratorium on the approval of any new GM crops for commercial production and consumption, pending the development of a more ‘precautionary’ regulatory environment. This informal 1998 moratorium on new GM crop approvals in the EU has continued to the present day. There are now a dozen or more new GM crop varieties stuck in the approval pipeline; all have been successfully screened by the EU Regulation of GM Crops Scientific Committee on Plants but they have not been approved for commercial release.
