For low-risk varieties, the time-consuming approval process and labeling obligations are going to be dropped. Some politicians and consumer associations have voiced criticism but the deregulation plan is long overdue. Life Sciences partner Wolfgang Schönig explains the details in an article in the Börsenzeitung.
