  • [01] OGM : la Commission autorise l'importation du maïs génétiquement modifié MON 863 destiné l'alimentation animale

    La Commission européenne a autorisé aujourd'hui la mise sur le marché du maïs génétiquement modifié MON 863 des fins d'importation et de transformation pour l'alimentation animale. La décision ne couvre pas ses utilisations sous forme de denrée alimentaire ou des fins de culture. Monsanto a modifié le maïs pour lui conférer la résistance la chrysomèle des racines du maïs. L'autorisation accordée Monsanto est valable pour 10 ans.

    [02] Avian influenza in Russia and Kazakhstan : import of feathers and live birds banned

    The European Commission has asked Member States to implement a ban on all imports of feathers and live birds from Russia and Kazakhstan with immediate effect, due to confirmed outbreaks of Avian Influenza (AI) in these countries. Russia and Kazakhstan have been added to the list of nine Asian countries (Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, China, Vietnam, North Korea, Pakistan and Malaysia) not allowed to export birds, their meat or products to the EU because of AI. No ban is necessary for eggs, poultry meat or meat products on this occasion, as there is no trade between Russia and Kazakhstan and the EU in these products. The Standing Committee on the Food Chain will review the decision when it meets in September.

    For more information on avian influenza, see:

    [03] Commission approves acquisition of Philips Monitors' business by TPV

    The European Commission has, under the EU Merger Regulation, approved the proposed acquisition by Hong Kong based TPV Technology Limited (TPV) of Dutch Royal Philips Electronics NV's businesses active in the sale of computer monitors and flat screen televisions to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers (Philips Monitors). After examining the operation, the Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area or any substantial part of it.

    [04] Commission opens probe into restructuring aid for Kliq in The Netherlands

    The European Commission has opened a formal investigation under EC Treaty state aid rulesinto restructuring aid for KG Holding N.V. (Kliq) in The Netherlands. The probe will allow the Commission to obtain more information on the measure and give an opportunity for interested third parties to give their comments. The Commission will then finalise its assessment of whether the measure is likely to cause undue distortion of competition within the Single Market.
