The basic national legal instrument concerning use of GMOs is the Act No. 151/2002 Coll., on the use of genetic technologies and genetically modified organisms, as amended, with an implementing Decree No. 399/2005 Coll.


The Act transposes Directives 2001/18/EC and 2009/41/EC, therefore it covers the contained use, deliberate release of GMOs into the environment and placing on the market of GMOs as products or in products.


General rules on the co-existence of genetically modified crops with conventional and organic farming are set by the Act No. 184/2006 Coll., as amended on the cultivation of genetically modified plants in agricultural production.
