Presentation of CRIIGEN

CRIIGEN, the Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering, was founded on 1 June 1999.

CRIIGEN is an apolitical and non-militant expert committee and consultancy, which is independent from producers of GMOs. It intervenes at different levels: legal, scientific (health, environment), sociological, technical (particularly labeling or threshold assays for GMOs), and economic.

Its particular aim is to produce research and independent information on genetic engineering and its impacts (whether natural or artificial, deliberate or accidental) in the fields of biology, environment, agriculture, food, medicine, and public health.

The association investigates, according to its statutes, the short, medium and long-term effects on human health and on the health of the entire living ecosystem.

This information is intended to be of high scientific quality: CRIIGEN works under the auspices of a Scientific Council, composed of French and foreign scientists, who determine research priorities according to their potential impacts on public health and the environment.

CRIIGEN’s interventions in these areas are carried out on behalf of citizens, businesses, associations, groups, and trade unions.

Purpose of the association

  • Research and information on genetic engineering and its impacts

  • The creation of a laboratory for research and analysis, or subcontracting, to carry out its own investigations

  • Bringing about an end to the secrecy on the manipulations of genetic engineering and genetically modified crop production

  • The development of methods that do not enable genetic pollution

  • To look at all the effects on ecosystems, as well as diseases related to the environment and pollution

  • To contribute, without restriction and in particular within French territory, to the study of the effects of widespread pollution and thus to the protection of the environment and public health.
