The Austrian Gene Technology Act
upper austria 2002
Upper Austria (2002)
  • key point:
  • because of the precautionary principle a ban for three years
  • justification for the ban:
  • inadequate risk assessment for gmo
  • protection of the organic- and the non-gm-farming
corinthia genetic engineering precautionary measures act

key points:

obligation of claim notification for every GMO-release

revision and approval case by case

responsible authorities may prohibit the release of GMOs,– co-existance

polluter of the ground bares the cost in case of damage

Corinthia Genetic Engineering Precautionary Measures Act
salzburg genetic engineering precautionary measures act

similarities with the Corinthian law, but better:

obligation for approval from authorities (not only obligation for claim notification)

connected to liability insurance or similar securities

Salzburg Genetic Engineering Precautionary Measures Act
possibility of prohibition of gmo cultivation beyond this no other legislative regulations planed
possibility of prohibition of GMO-cultivation

beyond this, no other legislative regulations planed

VorarlbergAct on Environmental Protection and Rural Developement
advantages and disadvantages

high influence by individual civil servants within the responsible authorities

lots of room for individual interpretations

no clear definition of the term co-existance

Advantages and Disadvantages
challenges for the future

need for clear and rigid definition for co-existance (zero tolerance)

ensure right to gmo-free regions

transfer good functioning practises onto other EU-member states.

Challenges for the Future
