USDA, FDA, EPA Launch Website for Biotechnology Regulation

Three federal government agencies have combined forces to launched a website overseeing agriculture biotechnology products for America’s food supply.

The Unified Website for Biotechnology Regulation launched on Thursday, under the auspices of the Department of Agriculture, the Food and Drug Administration, and Environmental Protection Agency.  The goals of the website are to provide enhanced customer service to innovators and developers, while ensuring Americans continue to enjoy the safest and most affordable food supply in the world and can learn more about the safe use of biotechnology innovations.

The website is part of President Donald Trump’s Executive Order on Modernizing the Regulatory Framework for Agricultural Biotechnology Products. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said the website is “proof of President Trump’s commitment to provide the American people with sensible regulations in a clear and transparent manner.”
