The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is seeking public comment on draft instructions to validate a refining process under the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (NBFDS). Validated refining processes can be used to demonstrate a food does not contain detectable modified genetic material and therefore does not require a disclosure under the NBFDS. AMS released the document prior to the holidays and only provided a 30 day comment period. Comments on the draft instructions are due by January 16, 2020.
