The preliminary programma for the G-TwYST stakeholder consultation workshop on March 28 and 29 in Antwerp is available now and can be downloaded here.


This workshop, which is open for interested stakeholders, will focus on the draft results of a 90-day feeding study with 50% inclusion rate of GM maize NK603, as well as a combined chronic toxicity and carcinogenicity feeding study and the overall draft conclusions. Also included in the scope would be proposed quality criteria for whole-food animal feeding studies, and preliminary conclusions on the scientific value of such studies for GMO risk assessment. An additional agenda item will be insights from an analysis of scientific controversies around animal feeding studies including the GMO case.



Registration for the workshop is compulsory. To prepare for the consultation, documentation will be provided in advance of the stakeholder meeting to registered parties. An electronic registration form is available at the G-TwYST website. Registration is possible untill March 14, 2018.

The NDA can be downloaded from the G-TwYST website. Please fill in your name, affiliation, address and signature and send it to .


Written comments, including from interested parties not able to attend, are welcome, and should be submitted before 6 April. Please, note, due to the tight schedule of the final phase of the project, this will be a firm deadline.
