Why Should you Attend
Public and scientific opinion on GMOs in the US is controversial and GMO labeling requirements have been a subject of much debate in the country. On July 1, 2016 Vermont enacted mandatory GMO product labeling and in July 2016 U.S. federal legislation was passed to require the labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients. This webinar will cover those two new pieces of legislation.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in food products are regulated by the FDA under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Public Health Service Act. The United States does not have any federal legislation that is specific to genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Rather, GMOs are regulated pursuant to health, safety, and environmental legislation governing conventional food products although the FDA has a Biotechnology Policy and a Biotechnology Consultation program. The U.S. is the world's leading producer of genetically modified (GM) crops. In 2012, of the 170.3 million hectares of biotech crops globally, the United States accounted for 69.5 million, over 40% of the total. (Source: Library of Congress)
