Traceability measures

Traceability and labelling

Both traceability and labelling are governed by EU regulations.

However, Italy also has an additional regulation passed by the MiPAF on November 27th, 2003. It demands early controls of maize and soybean seed marketed in Italy, via an accompanying declaration that the seed is free of GMOs.  

Enforcement of compliance

There is a penalty of up to 50,000 Euro for infringement of the EU regulations 1829/2003/EC and 1830/2003/EC.
