Abstract

This article presents a regulatory model that would regulate agricultural biotechnology on the basis of the product created and, then, on a tiered risk-based analysis. The article presents this model because United States regulatory agencies are currently reviewing their agricultural biotechnology regulations. This article joins that review conversation by proposing a risk-based model as the appropriate regulatory approach.
