GMO Plant Pests

WASHINGTON (CN) - The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service plans to change its regulations for the importation, interstate movement, and release into the environment of genetically engineered plant pests.

The changes are to implement parts of the Plant Protection Act and update the regulations regarding advances in genetic science and technology and APHIS' experience. The agency will consider public comments submitted by Nov. 24, or at one of three public forums.

This is the first comprehensive review and revision of the regulations since they were established in 1987.
