Abstract/Summary

Genetically modified (GM) crops are grown worldwide on 170 M ha, whereas cultivation within the EU has been restricted to 0.1 M ha. The UK Advisory Committee on Releases to the Environment (ACRE) has raised concerns about the current processes for carrying out Environmental Risk Assessments (ERAs) and about their future fitness for purpose. We summarise these concerns and consider future options.
