The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) Panel on Genetically Modified
Organisms of the European Food Safety Authority (GMO Panel) has published
the Scientific Opinion on the safety of genically mosified gliosinate- and
glyfosate-tolerant and insect-resistant maize 1507x59122xMON810xNK603 and
its 10 subcombinations independently of their origin. The scientific opinion
is published based on the application EFSA-GMO-NL-2011-92 under Regulation
(EC) No 1829/2003 from Pioneer.

The scope of application EFSA-GMO-NL-2011-92 is for the placing on the
market of maize 1507 59122 MON810 NK603 and all its subcombinations,
independently of their origin, for food and feed uses, import and

The GMO Panel previously assessed the four single events combined in this
four-event stack maize and five of their combinations and did not identify
safety concerns. No new data on the single events or their previously
assessed combinations leading to modification of the original conclusions
were identified. The GMO Panel concludes that the four-event stack maize is
as safe and as nutritious as its non-GM comparator.
