Detectability Testing

The regulations implementing the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (the Standard) identify the requirements for detecting modified genetic material at 7 CFR 66.9.  In the final rule, AMS indicated it would provide industry stakeholders further instructions regarding (1) acceptable testing methodology used to satisfy that a food does not contain detectable modified genetic material and (2) validating a refining process.  Draft instructions can be found at the links below.
