Genetically Engineered Crops: Agencies are Proposing Changes to Improve Oversight, but Could Take Additional Steps to Enhance Coordination and Monitoring
Lisa Shames (au)
Genetically engineered (GE) crops -- including crops engineered to resist pests or tolerate herbicides -- are widespread in the U.S. and around the world. Taking direction from the 1986 Coordinated Framework for Regulation of Biotechnology, the USDA, EPA, and FDA regulate GE crops to ensure that they are safe. The unauthorized mixing of some GE crops with non-GE crops has caused controversy and financial harm. This report examined: (1) unauthorized releases of GE crops; (2) coordination among the three agencies; and (3) additional actions they have proposed to improve oversight. The author gathered data from agencies and stakeholders; used criteria from prior reports to assess coordination; and reviewed agency proposals.
