Regulation on Genetically Modified Organisms and Their Products

Draft Standard  Affected Region: Turkey

The draft standard entails amendments to Turkey's Regulation on Genetically Modified Organisms and Their Products. A primary motivation behind these changes is the alignment of Turkey's GMO regulations with those of the European Union (EU). By introducing new limits on GMO traces, Turkey aims to enhance its compliance with EU legislation, fostering harmonized trade practices and ensuring consumer safety.

The proposed amendments involve stakeholder engagement, scientific evaluation, and transparent guidelines for testing and labeling GMO traces. By setting scientifically informed limits for GMO contamination, Turkey seeks to strike a balance between safeguarding human health, preserving consumer choices, and advancing its position in the global trade landscape. This strategic initiative reflects Turkey's dedication to responsible GMO regulation and its ambition to establish robust standards that resonate with international partners.
