The European Commission adopted five authorisations for Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) for food/feed use. These GMOs are as follows:
 
cotton 281-24-236 x 3006-210-23 x MON 88913;
cotton GHB 119;
maize Bt11 × 59122 × MIR604 × 1507 × GA21;
maize DAS-40278-9; and
the renewal of maize MON 810.
 
The GMOs approved had gone through a full authorisation procedure, including a favourable scientific assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
 
The authorisation decisions do not cover cultivation.
 
These GMOs had received "no opinion" votes from the Member States in both the Standing and Appeal Committees and the Commission adopted the pending decisions.
 
The authorisations are valid for 10 years, and any products produced from these GMOs will be subject to the EU's strict labelling and traceability rules.
