USDA/APHIS - Availability of draft environmental documents for petition to deregulate soybean developed using genetic engineering

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is inviting public comment on a draft Environmental Assessment and draft Plant Pest Risk Assessment prepared in response to a petition from BASF Corporation seeking deregulation of a soybean variety developed using genetic engineering for resistance to soybean cyst nematode, a microscopic parasitic worm, and for herbicide tolerance.

APHIS is seeking public comment on these documents for 30 days. APHIS will thoroughly review and consider all public input submitted during the comment period, and use the information as we work to complete, and then publish, final environmental documents and our regulatory determination.

These documents can be accessed now on the News page of APHIS’ Biotechnology Regulatory Services website. This notice may be viewed in Monday’s Federal Register. Beginning August 17, 2021, members of the public will be able to submit comments through September 16, 2021, at:  https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=APHIS-2020-0023.
