Consultations on Food from New Plant Varieties

The inventory below lists all completed consultations on foods from new plant varieties evaluated under FDA’s 1992 Statement of Policy: Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties. The page "Final Biotechnology Consultations" describes the information categories available in this inventory. We intend to update this inventory within one month after completing a consultation.

Consultations listed on this page are the subjects of a voluntary premarket engagement between FDA and the developer of the new plant variety. The goal of the consultation is to ensure that any food safety or other regulatory questions about food from the new variety are resolved prior to market entry. As part of the consultation process, a developer who intends to commercialize a new plant variety meets with the agency to identify and discuss relevant safety, nutritional, or other regulatory issues regarding food from the new variety and then submits to FDA a summary of its scientific and regulatory assessment of the food; FDA evaluates the submission and responds to the developer by letter. Manufacturers or purveyors of food have a legal obligation to produce safe, lawful food, regardless of whether a developer of a new plant variety chooses to consult with FDA prior to marketing.

This inventory is not intended to capture all new plant varieties that may have been introduced; however, foods produced using newer development techniques, such as genetic engineering, have historically been the subject of consultations with FDA prior to marketing.

Documents more than two years old are stored on an archive server outside FDA and may take longer to load; however, the information within those documents remains valid.
