Assessment RP1569 Genetically Modified 281- 24-236 × 3006-210-23 Cotton

This section summarises the assessment of the application for renewal authorisation of genetically modified 281-24-236 × 3006-210-23 cotton for food and feed uses, import and processing submitted in accordance with Assimilated Regulation (EC) No. 1829/2003 by Corteva Agriscience.

Executive summary

FSA/FSS have reviewed an assessment of application RP1569 for the renewal authorisation of genetically modified (GM) insect-resistant cotton 281-24-236 × 3006-210-23 for food and feed uses, import and processing.
This GM application has been made to renew the authorisation in Great Britain (GB) as it is 10 years since the stacked event was authorised and placed on the market in the EU. The same stacked event has been authorised for food and/or feed use in 10 other territories worldwide (not including all members of the EU) as the information and data demonstrate that the regulatory science and safety criteria are satisfied according to the regulatory requirements in those territories. This Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) had its authorisation renewed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in 2022.

FSA/FSS have reviewed the information provided by the applicant and the EFSA renewal Opinion1 and confirmed that GM cotton 281-24-236 × 3006-210-23, as described in this application, is unlikely to have any adverse effect on human or animal health or on the environment in the context of its intended uses in GB.
