The European Commission has authorized a genetically modified organism (GMO) for food and feed use: the glyphosate resistant soybean MON 87708 x MON 89788 x MON A5547-127. The decision was made on 28 September 2020 and is valid for 10 years. Following a favourable risk assessment by the European Food Safety Authority, the authorization does not permit cultivation of the GMO soybeans in the EU, any products produced from this genetically modified soybean will be required to comply with EU's labelling and traceability rules.
