Eile toimus mee-direktiivi muudatuse hääletusele GMO-õietolmu sisalduse märgistamise kohta mees, mis napilt kaotati. Meie saadikute hääled jagunesid 3-3. Eesti saadikutega võtsid ühendust ka EKMÜ esindajad ja selgitasid omapoolset nägemust. 

Eriline tänu mesinike poolt ladusa koostöö eest Indrek Tarandile!

Parliament clarifies labelling rules for honey if contaminated by GM pollen

Parliament endorsed draft rules defining pollen
as a natural constituent of honey, rather than an ingredient, in a vote
on Wednesday. This means that GM pollen has to be labelled if it makes
up more than 0.9% of the honey.


“The ingredient/constituent argument has arisen due to
the labelling implications of each option. If pollen continues to be
considered a ‘constituent’, any GM pollen present would not need to be
labelled. This is because, according to the GM regulation, only GM
content above 0.9 % needs to be labelled. Since pollen only forms around
0.5 % of any batch of honey, it would never exceed the labelling
threshold," said the rapporteur, Julie Girling (ECR, UK). Her report was
adopted by 430 votes to 224, with 19 abstentions.


The full Parliament rejected a proposal by the
environment committee to consider GM pollen as an ingredient rather than
a natural constituent of honey, in line with a Court of Justice ruling
in 2011.


GM pollen labelled above 0.9% as volume of honey

 

With pollen defined as a constituent of honey, current EU
legislation on labelling applies, which states that GMOs must be
indicated if they are present as a quantity of more than 0.9% of the
honey (and not of the pollen).


Seeking legal clarity

 

Current legislation does not state explicitly whether
pollen in honey is, or is not, an ingredient. The Court of Justice
sought to clarify this in a ruling in September 2011 which defined
pollen as an "ingredient" of honey, thereby requiring producers to
indicate “pollen” in a list of ingredients on the label of the product.
However, in the rules proposed by the Commission and backed on Wednesday
by Parliament, pollen is defined as a constituent of honey, not an
ingredient.


Next steps


The rapporteur received a mandate from the plenary to
start negotiations with the Greek presidency of the Council with a view
to reaching agreement at first reading.
