Lex Mundi has published a new agribusiness multi-jurisdictional survey, Requirements to Sell, Manufacture or Commercialize Transgenics, Insecticides, Pesticides, Herbicides and Rodenticides.
Prepared by the Lex Mundi Agribusiness Practice Group, the survey addresses the issues of commercialization, government regulation, importing, exporting and human consumption of "GMOs", genetically modified organisms, in more than thirty jurisdictions around the world. It is available to download free of charge in its entirety or by jurisdiction at http://www.lexmundi.com/lexmundi/Agribusiness_Survey.asp.
The survey was prepared in response to an increased awareness and concern regarding GMOs, which include transgenic crops and other products. The survey can serve as a valuable resource for companies that are considering agribusiness investments in this area.
