Statement complementing the EFSA GMO Panel scientific opinion on maize MON 89034 x 1507 x MON 88017 x 59122 (application EFSA-GMOCZ-2008-62), to cover all sub-combinations independently of their origin

EFSA Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)

Following a request from the European Commission, the Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA GMO Panel) was asked to complement its scientific opinion on insect resistant and herbicide tolerant genetically modified (GM) maize MON 89034 x 1507 x MON 88017 x 59122 (EFSA-GMO-CZ-2008-62) issued in 2010, to cover all sub-combinations independently of their origin. The EFSA GMO Panel scientific opinion covered the safety assessment of maize MON 89034 x 1507 x MON 88017 x 59122 and all sub-combinations of the individual events as present in its segregating progeny, for food and feed uses, import and processing under Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003. Each single event present in maize MON 89034 x 1507 x MON 88017 x 59122 and two of the possible sub-combinations, namely maize 1507 x 59122 (EFSA-GMO-NL-2005-15) and MON 89034 x MON 88017 (EFSA-GMO-NL-2007-39), were previously assessed by the EFSA GMO Panel. In view of the European Commission’s request and, having considered all relevant available information on maize MON 89034 x 1507 x MON 88017 x 59122 and on the single maize events, the EFSA GMO Panel considers it unlikely that the sub-combinations have an adverse effect on human and animal health and the environment, in the context of its intended uses which cover food and feed uses, import and processing. This conclusion was further supported by the assessments of maize 1507 x 9122 and maize MON 89034 x MON 88017. The EFSA GMO Panel concludes that the present statement can complement its scientific opinion on maize MON 89034 x 1507 x MON 88017 x 59122 to cover all subcombinations independently of their origin.
