Rebroadcast of Public Symposium on Regulation of Plant-Incorporated Protectants – Register for November 18, 2016, Webinar

In September 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency held a public symposium on data that support registration of plant incorporated protectants (PIPs). The information from that symposium will be rebroadcast as a webinar on Thursday, November 18, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The symposium provided a forum for PIP developers, the agricultural sector and the general public to get information firsthand on the scope of the scientific review process that determines the safety of PIPs and on the pesticide registration process as a whole. The majority of PIPs registered in the past 20-plus years use insecticidal traits of bacterial proteins to enhance the plant’s resistance to insect herbivores. EPA, FDA and USDA representatives gave an overview of the regulatory system that applies to biotechnology in the United States in the context of the Coordinated Framework for Regulation of Biotechnology.

We plan to post a recording of the webinar on our website in early December 2016.
