Building on 30 Years of Experience to Prepare for the Future of Biotechnology

As part of the Administration’s continuing effort to modernize the Federal regulatory system for biotechnology products, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released two documents today—a
proposed Update to the Coordinated Framework for the Regulation of Biotechnology and a
National Strategy for Modernizing the Regulatory System for Biotechnology Products.. Together, these documents present a comprehensive summary of the roles and responsibilities of the three primary regulatory agencies with respect to the regulation of biotechnology products and a vision for ensuring that the Federal regulatory system is equipped to assess efficiently the risks, if any, associated with future products of biotechnology.
