Attend this webinar to learn an overview of the status of GMO's in the U.S., how they are regulated by the FDA, FDA's biotechnology policy and biotechnology consultation program and GMO labeling around the world.

Public and scientific opinion on GMOs in the US is controversial and GMO labeling requirements has been a subject of much debate in the country.

Strong pressure from industry groups and the general population have meant that a slew of new labeling requirements for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) will go into effect in 2018. But those regulations are filled with caveats and fine details-and in many cases vary from one state to another. This is a complicated field to navigate-you can't simply Google your way to compliance.
