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.

Search and display hints:

  • Select the BNF No. below to view the record details, including the FDA memos (note to file), added proteins or DNA, intended effects, and developer.
  • Select the FDA Letter Date to view the text of the agency's response to the scientific and regulatory assessment submitted by the developer during the consultation (also available on the record details page).
  • To sort by a specific field, click on the column header for that field.
  • To browse the records, use the Show All, First/Previous/Next/Last, and Jump To options at the bottom right of the data table.
  • To search for a specific term, enter the term in the Search box and select Show Items to display only those records that contain the selected term. (The search results also includes terms not shown on this page, but included in the full record on the detail page.)
  • The search results will return hits of records containing words that include the search term. For example, a search for the color red will return results that include terms such as reduce and altered. To limit results to only the searched term, place a space before and after the word in the basic search or in the advanced search “this exact phrase” field.
