GAIN Report Presents Agri-biotech Status in MoroccoAugust 5, 2015
Biotechnology continues to be a politically sensitive issue in Morocco, according to the USDA Foreign Agriculture Service Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) Report. A law was drafted in 2008 to regulate the introduction, use, and marketing of biotech products, however the law was dismissed in 2011 and there have been no updates since then. The country allows GM feeds, but bans GM products for food.
Morocco ratified the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety in 2011, and in the following year, approved the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit-sharing.
