GM Inspectorate

The Scottish Government opposes the cultivation of GM crops which could damage Scotland's rich environment and would threaten our reputation for producing high quality and natural foods.  It would diminish Scotland's image as a land of food and drink.

Taking account of this policy, SASA provides advice on plant health issues related to the contained use of GMOs and, through the GM Inspectorate, advice and inspection services on the release of GM crop plants into the environment.

Key services provided by the GM Inspectorate are:

SASA also provides a diagnostic testing service for the GM Inspectorate.
