Serbia 2013 Progress Report

Serbia 2013 Progress Report

As regards genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the GMO Law has not been aligned with EU legislation. This remains the key condition for Serbia to become a WTO member.

Conclusion

There has been little progress in the area of food safety, veterinary and phytosanitary policy, mainly limited to the veterinary field. A reliable system of national reference laboratories needs to be set up to improve general food safety. In addition, further capacity building is needed in the area of food and feed establishments, animal by-products and phytosanitary policy. The GMO law needs to be aligned with EU legislation to enable WTO accession. Overall, preparations in the area of food safety, veterinary and phytosanitary policy are moderately advanced.
