Parallel production, GMO - CZ KEZ Standards

KEZ, o.p.s. (2005) Parallel production, GMO - CZ KEZ Standards. [Organic rules - Differences between other regulations/standards and EEC No 2092/91]

Full text not available from this repository.

Summary

Complete exclusion of GMOs is required, not only in veterinary treatment but also in parallel conventional production. GMO's or their products may not be used in either part of the farm.

Difference

The KEZ standards prohibit the use of GMOs in non-organic, split production, but the EU Regulation 2092/91 Article 6.1d) requieres only that genetically modified organisms and/or any product derived from such organisms must not be used, with the exception of veterinary medicinal products. EU Regulation does not deal with parallel conventional production and GMOs.

Justification

Complete exclusion of GMOs and their products on the whole farm reduces the risk of contamination.
