Argentina accelerates its biotech crop approval process
Friday April 05 2013

It took 20 years for Argentina to approve the first 13 genetically engineered crops for commercial planting, and 15 more were approved in the past three years, but a new regulatory framework for approval aims at further accelerating the process, EU Food Law reports.

The multi-year regulatory streamlining process culminated with the agriculture ministry’s launch, on March 23, of a comprehensive regulatory framework for the review and approval of GE seed technology. This framework is expected to accelerate the process of evaluating the risks and benefits of adopting new seed varieties.
