The European Union has now put in place an extensive regime for the regulation of GMOs and this chapter provides an overview of that regime. In particular, it maps out the legislation which governs: the contained use of GMOs, the deliberate release of GMOs into the environment and their placing on the market, GM food and feed, and traceability and labelling. At a broader level, it also assesses the extent to which these specific measures have been integrated into wider European Union policy on food law. It focuses their interaction with the Food Law Regulation, the role of the precautionary principle, and the provision of information for consumers and civil society.

Keywords:   genetically modified organisms, contained use, deliberate release, food and feed, precautionary principle, consumers
