Abstract or Summary
This document provides a scientific opinion of the Scientific Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO Panel) of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) on genetically modified (GM) cotton GHB614 (Unique Identifier BCS-GHØØ2-5) developed to provide tolerance to glyphosate-based herbicides.
In conclusion, the EFSA GMO Panel considers that the information available for cotton GHB614 addresses the scientific comments raised by Member States and that cotton GHB614 is as safe as its conventional counterpart with respect to potential effects on human and animal health and the environment. The EFSA GMO Panel thus concludes that cotton GHB614 is unlikely to have any adverse effect on human and animal health or on the environment in the context of its intended uses.
Application for the placing on the market of glyphosate tolerant genetically modified cotton GHB614, for food and feed uses, import and processing (held on an external server, and so may require additional authentication details)
