Belarusian food products will be marked with a special sign in the EEU market. GMO labeling will be required on all food packaging.
These changes will amend the Law on Quality and Safety of Food Raw Materials and Food Products. MPs of the House of Representatives are also considering other amendments that provide unhindered access for Belarusian goods to the EEU market.
On 18 January, Belarusian MPs discussed the stages of the legislative process.
Valentin Milosevsky, deputy of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus:
GMO labeling must be required on all food packaging. Especially if the content of GMO is more than 0.9%.
The Lower House of Parliament is preparing a number of other draft laws, including the ones on investment funds, road transportation and counteracting monopolistic activity.
