EPA to Rebroadcast the Public Symposium on Regulation of Plant-Incorporated Protectants

Register for the November 18, 2016 Webinar

In September 2016, EPA held a public symposium on data that support registration of plant incorporated protectants (PIPs). The information from that symposium will be rebroadcast as a webinar on Thursday, November 18, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The symposium provided a forum for PIP developers (e.g., registrants), the agricultural sector and the general public to get firsthand information on the scope of the scientific review process that determines the safety of PIPs and on the pesticide registration process as a whole. The majority of PIPs registered in the past 20-plus years use insecticidal traits of bacterial proteins to enhance the plant’s resistance to insect herbivores. In this webinar, EPA, FDA and USDA representatives give an overview of the regulatory system as it applies to biotechnology in the United States, specifically in the context of the Coordinated Framework for Regulation of Biotechnology.

For those interested in just the recording, EPA plans to post a recording of the webinar on their website in early December 2016.
