Site Monitoring

The Scottish Government GM Inspectorate directly monitored, or oversaw monitoring of, three sites where inadvertent sowings of GM crop seed took place in September 2008. Monitoring was continued until the autumn of 2011 with no further presence detected.

Case by Case Investigations

The GM Inspectorate investigates incidents that arise by through their routine duties or through enquiries that have been brought to the attention the Scottish Government’s CAP Reform and Crop Policy Branch.

Previous incidents have involved the trialling of conventional varieties which contained adventitious GM seed that were not authorised for cultivation.

For information on any case by case investigations please see GM Inspectorate Publications.
