European Food Authority to open up GMO data - Nature News Blog (2013)

European Food Authority to open up GMO data - Nature News Blog (2013) | Open Government Daily | Scoop.it

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) today made public almost all supporting documents and data submitted by Monsanto for the authorization in 2003 of its genetically modified maize (corn) NK603. The data were released alongside the announcement by the EFSA that it intends... to make data from its risk assessments more available to the broad scientific community and other interested parties... 

 

The EFSA said that it chose to make the NK603 data publicly available first because of the level of public interest in response to a French-led study published in September, which... has been roundly criticized by scientists and authorities as being methodologically flawed...

 

Gilles-Eric Séralini, ... who led the study, has refused to make his raw data available until the EFSA made its NK603 data available... he welcomes the EFSA move but also wants raw data on glyphosate-safety studies. The researcher also... will pursue several of his critics for libel.
