November 6, 2009

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) will be holding a stakeholder meeting to discuss its current biotechnology regulatory activities on Nov. 17, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Riverdale, Maryland.

"We work hard to ensure that our stakeholders are regularly updated on our Biotechnology Regulatory Services (BRS) program's activities and have the opportunity to provide us with their input and feedback," said APHIS Administrator Cindy Smith. "This meeting allows stakeholders to not only hear first hand from our BRS staff about a wide variety of issues, improvements and initiatives taking place across the program, but to also provide us with their feedback as we implement those activities."
