[Webinar] What’s the latest on bioengineered disclosure: USDA’s proposed rule

Friday, June 15, 2018 – 1:00-2:00 pm ET

On May 7, USDA’S Agricultural Marketing Service released a proposed rule proposing a national standard for disclosure of bioengineered foods (aka GMO labeling rule). The proposed rule on bioengineered disclosure leaves many long-awaited questions unanswered – such as how refined ingredients will be handled and the threshold for minor levels of ingredients, and seeks input from stakeholders on a number of additional issues. However, the rule does shed light on several compliance issues such as: proposed definitions for small/very small manufacturers and small/very small packages as well as proposed text, symbols and electronic disclosure options. USDA will be accepting public comment on the proposed rule until July 3, 2018.

Join this webinar to learn more about the contents of the proposed rule and what to expect.

This complimentary webinar is provided at no cost to NCA members.
