Abstract

Following a request from the European Commission, the Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA GMO Panel) assessed the results of the general surveillance activities contained in the revised annual post-market environmental monitoring (PMEM) report for the 2013 growing season of maize MON 810 provided by Monsanto Europe S.A. The supplied data do not indicate any unanticipated adverse effects on human and animal health or the environment arising from the cultivation of maize MON 810 cultivation in 2013. Similar methodological shortcomings to those observed in previous annual PMEM reports were identified in the analysis of farmer questionnaires and the conduct of the literature review. The EFSA GMO Panel therefore strongly reiterates its previous recommendations to improve the methodology of future annual PMEM reports on maize MON 810. The EFSA GMO Panel urges the applicant to consider how to make best use of the information recorded in national registers in order to optimise sampling for farmer questionnaires, reiterates its previous recommendations on insect resistance monitoring and continued screening, and requests to continue reviewing and discussing relevant scientific publications on possible adverse effects of maize MON 810 on rove beetles. Also, the EFSA GMO Panel encourages relevant parties to continue developing a methodological framework to use existing networks in the broader context of environmental monitoring.
