Learn about regulation of GMOs

posted in: News | 0

Anyone interested in how genetically engineered organisms are regulated in the US should check out the Stakeholder meeting presented by the USDA’s Biotechnology Regulatory Services (BRS) happening on November 19 from 8:30am to 12:00pm EST. You can find registration information for the webinar and the agenda at the BRS website.

The agenda includes highlights such as “Coexistence of Agricultural Sectors: A USDA Perspective” and “Global Trade and Acceptance of GE Crops”. There’ll also be a panel discussion about how BRS’s parent organization, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) interfaces with the EPA and FDA.

For more biotech news from BRS, you can view their news page or sign up for emails through their Stakeholder Registry.
