EPA to host workshop on risk assessment of genetically altered algae Sept. 30

In Washington, the EPA will be hosting a public meeting entitled, “Workshop for Public Input on Considerations for Risk Assessment of Genetically Engineered Algae” on September 30, 2015. The objective of this workshop is to receive public input and comments on EPA’s data needs to support risk assessments of biotechnology products subject to oversight under the Toxic Substances Control Act that make use of genetically engineered algae and cyanobacteria. The workshop will inform an update to an EPA guidance document entitled “Points to Consider in The Preparation of TSCA Biotechnology Submissions for Microorganisms”. EPA encourages all members of the public interested in participating in this workshop to register to attend, whether in-person or through the Web-connect and teleconference that will also be available.
