Products (1) foods and food ingredients containing, consisting of, or produced from genetically modified maize (Zea mays L.) referred to in the "unique identifiers" row;
(2) feed containing, consisting of, or produced from genetically modified maize (Zea mays L.) referred to in the "unique identifiers" row;
(3) genetically modified maize (Zea mays L.) referred to in the "unique identifiers" row in products containing them or consisting of them for uses other than those provided for in points (1) and (2), with the exception of cultivation.
Designation The genetically modified maize MON-87427-7 expresses the CP4 epsps gene, which confers tolerance to glyphosate-based herbicides.

The genetically modified maize MON-8746Ø-4 expresses a Bacillus subtilis modified cspB gene, which aims to reduce yield loss caused by drought stress. In addition, the nptII gene, conferring kanamycin and neomycin resistance, was used as a selection marker in the genetic modification process.

The genetically modified maize MON-89Ø34-3 expresses the cry1A.105 and cry2Ab2 genes, which confer protection against certain lepidopteran pests.

The genetically modified maize SYN-IR162-4 expresses a modified vip3Aa20 gene, which provides protection against certain lepidopteran pests. In addition, the pmi gene coding for the PMI protein was used as a selection marker in the genetic modification process.

The genetically modified maize MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 expresses the CP4 epsps and the CP4 epsps L214P genes, which confer tolerance to glyphosate-based herbicides.
Labelling For the purposes of the labelling requirements laid down in Article 13(1) and Article 25(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003, and in Article 4(6) of Regulation (EC) No 1830/2003, the 'name of the organism' shall be 'maize';

The words 'not for cultivation' shall appear on the label of and in the accompanying documents of the products containing or consisting the maize specified with their unique identifiers, with the exception of foods and food ingredients.
Method for detection - The quantitative event-specific PCR detection methods are those individually validated for genetically modified maize events MON-87427-7, MON-8746Ø-4, MON-89Ø34-3, SYN-IR162-4 and MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 and further verified on maize MON-87427-7 × MON-8746Ø-4 × MON-89Ø34-3 × SYN-IR162-4 × MON-ØØ6Ø3-6.
