The European Parliament has voted in favour of strict new rules to test and monitor the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

The EU assembly voted by 338 to 52 on Wednesday, with 85 abstentions, to approve the new rules on granting permits for GMOs to be grown and used in the 15 EU nations.

An informal block on approving new commercial GM crop planting has been in place for the last couple of years, with nations agreeing a moratorium until this new law was passed.
