About this book

Agricultural biotechnology takes many forms and applications, with the number and diversity of products ever increasing. With this rapid development, regulatory authorities have sought to keep pace through regulatory adjustments and advances to ensure the safe and beneficial use of this critical technology. The regulatory systems for the U.S. and Canada are not static and must evolve in order to maintain relevance, efficiency and applicability to the challenges encountered. The diverse authors, drawn from the biotechnology industry, academia, government research and regulatory agencies, offer their perspectives of the historical and current system and suggest where it can be improved in the future. Based upon vast experience interacting with the regulatory system, the editors and authors offer demystifying views of the US and Canadian regulatory structures and how they came to be. We know of no other effort to present the biotechnology regulatory systems of the US and Canada in an open forum which will benefit those in the regulated community as well as those charged with oversight of the products of biotechnology, and ultimately the consumer!

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book describes the history and scope of North American agricultural biotechnology concerns, laws, and policies. Each of the 17 chapters is written by an authority on the topic and contains highly relevant primary source references. … the book explores global regulatory perspectives on biotechnology products and the influence of public sector research on agricultural biotechnology. The text is well written, and the information provided is free from bias. Summing Up: Recommended. All academic and professional public policy, science law, and bioethics library collections.” (B. R. Shmaefsky, Choice, Vol. 50 (9), May, 2013)
