(2002/813/EC)



THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Directive 2001/18/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 March 2001 on the deliberate release into the environment of genetically modified organisms and repealing Directive 90/220/EEC ( 1 ), and in particular Article 11(1) thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

Under Part B of Directive 2001/18/EC, prior notification must be given to the competent national authority of the planned release of a genetically modified organism (hereinafter referred to as GMO), or of a combination of such organisms, for purposes other than for placing on the market.

(2)

Within the framework established by the Directive 2001/18/EC for the exchange of information between the competent authorities and the Commission, the authority must then send a summary, in accordance with a specific format, of the notification to the Commission, which in turn must forward copies to the other Member States.

(3)

That format should reflect the need to enable the fullest possible exchange of relevant information, presented in a standardised and easily comprehensible manner, without prejudice to the fact that the information thus provided cannot serve as the basis for an environmental risk assessment.

(4)

The committee set up under Article 30(2) of Directive 2001/18/EC was consulted on 12 June 2002 and has not delivered an opinion on the Commission's proposal for a Decision,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:



Article 1

For the purposes of summarising, for transmission to the Commission, notifications received pursuant to Article 6 of Directive 2001/18/EC, the competent authorities appointed by Member States under that Directive shall use the Summary Notification Information Format set out in the Annex to this Decision.

Article 2

This Decision is addressed to the Member States.




ANNEX

SUMMARY NOTIFICATION INFORMATION FORMAT FOR THE DELIBERATE RELEASE OF A GMO OR A COMBINATION OF GMOs FOR PURPOSES OTHER THAN FOR PLACING ON THE MARKET

INTRODUCTION

The Summary Notification Information Format for deliberate releases of a GMO or of a combination of GMOs, has been established for the purposes and according to the procedures envisaged by Article 11 of Directive 2001/18/EC.

It is recognized that this Format is not designed to accommodate all the information required for carrying out an environmental risk assessment.

The space provided after each question is not indicative of the depth of the information required for the purposes of the Summary Notification Information Format.

The Summary Notification Information Format consists of a Part 1 and a Part 2.

Part 1 applies to products consisting of or containing genetically modified organisms other than higher plants and contains the following sections:

AGeneral Information

BInformation relating to the recipient or parental organisms from which the GMO is derived

CInformation relating to the genetic modification

DInformation on the organism(s) from which the insert is derived (donor)

EInformation relating to the genetically modified organism

FInformation relating to the release

GInteractions of the GMO with the environment and potential impact on the environment

HInformation relating to monitoring

IInformation on post-release and waste treatment

JInformation on emergency response plans

In Part 1 the information entered should, however, adequately reflect (in a condensed form) the information submitted to the competent authority in accordance with Articles 6 and 7 of Directive 2001/18/EC under the conditions specified in the preface to Annex IIIA.

Part 2 applies to products consisting of or containing genetically modified higher plants. The term ‘higher plants’ means plants which belong to the taxonomic group Gymnospermae and Angiospermae. Part 1 contains the following sections:

AGeneral information

BInformation on the genetically modified plant

CInformation relating to the experimental release

DSummary of the potential environmental impact of the release of the GMPts

EBrief description of any measures taken for the management of risks

FSummary of planned field trials designed to gain new data on the environmental and human health impact of the release.

In Part 2 the information entered should, however, adequately reflect (in a condensed form) the information submitted to the competent authority in accordance with Articles 6 and 7 of Directive 2001/18/EC under the conditions specified in the preface to Annex IIIB.
