APHIS discussion of streamlined approvals highlights meeting

March 15, 2012 | 0 comments

Members of the American Soybean Association's (ASA) Biotech Working Group met in Washington, DC, to discuss, among other items, a new effort on the part of the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to streamline the approval process of new biotech traits.

Michael Gregoire, deputy administrator for APHIS' Biotechnology Regulatory Services Program, spoke before the group comprising soybean farmer leaders and industry stakeholders on his agency's initiative to increase efficiencies in the regulatory review process for new biotech traits.

Additional presentations at the Biotech Working Group Meeting included an update on the biotech approvals process within the Chinese marketplace by USDA Foreign Agricultural Service's Mark Petry, as well as a review of the biotech landscape in the European Union.

The meeting also included consultations with individual technology companies on their biotech pipelines, the status of regulatory clearances in foreign markets, and stewardship plans for new biotech traits.

Formed by ASA in 2007, the Biotech Working Group comprises farmer-leaders and staff from ASA, the United Soybean Board, the U.S. Soybean Export Council, and the major technology companies that are developing new biotech soybean events.
