Regulatory Guidance & Oversight of the USDA BE Disclosure Standard

Trevor Findley, Deputy Director, Food Disclosure and Labeling, AMS

Recorded on June 3, 2020

Released on December 20, 2018, the USDA’s National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (the Standard) requires the industry to label products that contain bioengineered foods before the mandatory compliance date of January 1, 2022. Labeling executives seek further clarification regarding the definition of bioengineered food and the process for determining whether certain highly refined ingredients are considered bioengineered foods. In addition, the Standard allows a variety of methods to disclose BE foods including text, symbol, digital link, or text message, allowing manufacturers to choose the best method to communicate to consumers.
