 en International Harmonisation of Biotechnology Regulatory Policies: Role of USDA, APHIS1
Shantharam, Sivramiah

Abstract

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) have played a pioneering role in establishing and promoting international harmonization of biotechnology regulatory policies. USDA and APHIS have developed data sets for assessment of transgenic plants before commercial release, and standards of review for environmental risk assessment. APHIS, through the world wide web, is now providing instant information on field tests and biotechnology regulatory programmes.
