Testbiotech comment on EFSA GMO Panel Scientific Opinion on the assessment of genetically engineered cotton GHB614xT304-40xGHB119 for food and feed uses, import and processing (EFSA-GMO-NL-2014-122) of company Bayer

Cotton GHB614xT304-40xGHB119 is derived from the crossing of three events:
• Cotton GHB614 is engineered to be resistant to the herbicide glyphosate
• Cotton T304-40 produces the insecticidal protein Cry1Ab, and is resistant to glufosinate
• Cotton GBH119 produces the insecticidal protein Cry2Ae, and is resistant to glufosinate.

Regulation (EU) No 503/2013 which foresees 90-day animal feeding studies, an extended literature review, specific monitoring requirements and specific statistical analysis was applied in the risk assessment of the stacked event.
