Dear EEA,
This is my last year as a student specialized in law. I am writing my thesis about the legislation of genetically modified organisms, especially in agriculture.

I would appreciate if you could share your opinion and some of your writings about the topic.

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

Dear Ms. Jessica Horvath,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The EEA is the EU agency responsible for providing information on the European environment. The aim of the EEA is to ensure that decision-makers and the public are kept informed about the state and outlook of the environment. The EEA collects environmental data from the Member Countries, other EU institutions and international organisations. Based on this information, we produce reports on various environmental topics.

As the European environmental legislation is beyond the EEA’s working remit, we would recommend that you contact the European Commission (DG SANTE) directly via its online service: You might also be interested to consult the EU dedicated webpage on GMO at as well as the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) webpage at

We wish you all the best in your thesis.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
