"As tested on several previous occasions, the Commission takes the view that if a region wants to ban GMO crops or products, such restrictions must be scientifically justified and crop-specific to comply with EU law.
It also believes that a proposed ban must not be politically motivated, or a blanket GMO restriction that might distort the EU's single trading market.
Poland's law on seeds and plant protection, adopted in April 2006, introduced a total ban of trade in GMO seeds varieties on Polish territory.
Since the use and trade of GMO seeds was harmonized across EU member countries, the Commission had told Poland -- in a first letter sent in October 2006 and then in another sent in June 2007 -- that its GMO ban broke EU law, the statement said."
Ca présage de la situation avec la France :-) J'espère que ça arrivera au moment où la France aura la présidence de l'UE, juste pour que ça fasse un peu plus de buzz.
