According to the EU jurisprudence and the European institutions, the limit of 0,9% represents a threshold comparable to the ones provided for in the remediation regulations or in other acts of food Law. Consequences of it would affect the "coexistence measures" we are waiting for, and the possibility of having a totally "gmo-free" product on our table.
