Technical experts ascribed to National Regulatory bodies have expressed their concerns regarding the difficulties of implementing the European Court of Justice (ECJ)’s decision on regulating new breeding techniques (NBTs). Stakeholders remain preoccupied over the negative impact the ECJ ruling may have on Spain’s research and agricultural competitiveness.
