ABSTRACT
This article reveals the plans of the European Commission (EC) to impose mandatory test-bag for unauthorised genetically modified (GM) organisms in all imports of U.S. long-grain rice. In August 2006, the U.S. authorities revealed the presence of unauthorised strains of GM rice in exports from the US. Since then, the EU has been trying to establish a common testing regime. Environmental group Friends of the Earth has welcomed the move by the EC.
