Executive Order 13874: Modernizing the Regulatory Framework for Agricultural Biotechnology Products [open pdf - 178KB]
Alternate Title: EO 13874: Modernizing the Regulatory Framework for Agricultural Biotechnology Products
From the Purpose: "Recent advances in biotechnology have the potential to revolutionize agriculture and thereby enhance rural prosperity and improve the quality of American lives. Biotechnology can help the Nation meet its food production needs, raise the productivity of the American farmer, improve crop and animal characteristics, increase the nutritional value of crop and animal products, and enhance food safety. In order to realize these potential benefits, however, the United States must employ a science-based regulatory system that evaluates products based on human health and safety and potential benefits and risks to the environment. Such a system must both foster public confidence in biotechnology and avoid undue regulatory burdens."
