Manques et améliorations possibles en droit européen sur l'encadrement des OGM - Dr Panoff et Baudin-Maurin

Lundi 12 Janvier 2015

Dans un nouvel article deux membres du CRIIGEN, le Dr en droit Marie-Pierre Baudin-Maurin, et le Pr. en microbiologie Jean-Michel Panoff, tous deux de l'Université de Caen, ont une approche transdisciplinaire originale pour mieux évaluer les directives européennes sur les OGM. Ils montrent comment plusieurs types d'OGM en sont exclus, les ambiguités, et les améliorations possibles.

Abstract: Because of the complexity of many environmental problems, we need their holistic assessment. That is why, in such a matter, a multidisciplinary approach is necessary. It has also been the guiding line for this present study on the European regulation of the GMOs, crossing the different points of view of a lawyer and a biologist. According to the European legislation, molecular biology and dissemination of genetically modified organisms are mainly regulated by two major directives of the European Parliament and of the Council: Directive 2009/41/EC on the contained use of genetically modified microorganisms, and Directive 2001/18/EC on the deliberate release into the environment of genetically modified organisms. Two different approaches are possible to analyse those directives and suggest possible improvements.
