The updated version of the monitoring guidelines will soon be available to download here. For the moment the guidelines are only available in German.Essential basis for the monitoring is the Directive on Risk-Based Control of Freedom from GMO. This directive regulates the procedures and intensity of the monitoring activities and is the basis for the accreditation of monitoring bodies.
Risk-based control implies: According to the risk of a possible mixing of GMO-free products with other products (applies i.e. to storage, feed, feed ingredients, agricultural tools and machines), agricultural enterprises are assigned to a certain risk level (from 0 - 3) by the monitoring authority. The risk level influences the frequency of the controls.
Furthermore the specifications of the ARGE Gentechnik-frei monitoring-system for GMO-free produced food apply.
