ACS-ZMØØ3-2xMON-ØØ81Ø-6
Commodity: Corn / Maize
Traits: Glufosinate tolerance,Lepidoptera resistance
Japan
Name of product applicant: DuPont K.K.
Summary of application:

The stacked maize line ACS-ZMØØ3-2 x MON-ØØ81Ø-6 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of PAT and Cry1Ab genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera, and tolerant to glufosinate herbicide.

The safety assessment of foods and food additives produced by recombinant DNA techniques (hereafter GM foods) is mandatory under the Food Sanitation Law. The Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare (MHLW) receives application from Applicant and requests the Food Safety Commission of Japan (FSCJ) to evaluate the safety of GM foods, and the FSCJ evaluates the safety in terms of human health. Within the FSCJ, the Expert Committee of Genetically Modified Foods conducts safety assessments based on following standards and policies
(1) Standards for the Safety Assessment of Genetically Modified Foods
(2) Policies Regarding the Safety Assessment of Stacked Varieties of Genetically Modified Plants
(3) Standards for the Safety Assessment of Food Additives Produced Using Genetically Modified Microorganisms
(4) Policies Regarding the Safety Assessment of Highly Purified Non-Protein Food Additives including Amino Acids Produced Using Genetically Modified Microorganisms It is forbidden to import or sell genetically modified foods or food products made from such foods that have not undergone safety assessment. After FSCJ submits a notification to MHLW, MHLW gives notice on the Official Gazette.
