EFSA Releases Scientific Opinion on Three-Event Stack GM Maize NK603 × T25 × DAS-40278-9December 15, 2021
The Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO Panel) of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published the Scientific Opinion on the safety of three-event stack genetically modified (GM) maize glufosinate, glyphosate, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) herbicides tolerant maize NK603 × T25 × DAS-40278-9 and its subcombinations independently of their origin.
The Scientific Opinion is published based on the application EFSA-GMO-NL-2019-164 under Regulation (EC) No. 1829/2003 for import, processing, and food and feed uses within the European Union (EU). Maize NK603 × T25 × DAS-40278-9 was produced by conventional crossing to combine three single events: NK603, T25, and DAS-40278-9. The GMO Panel previously assessed the three single maize events and two of the subcombinations and did not identify safety concerns.
The GMO Panel did not identify any safety concerns in the previous assessments. No safety issue concerning the three single maize events was identified by the updated bioinformatic analyses, nor reported by the applicant since the publication of the previous GMO Panel scientific opinions. Therefore, the GMO Panel considers that its previous conclusions on the safety of the single maize events remain valid.
