Nuts and Bolts of Biotech Regulations

Helping to ensure customer access to a wide diversity of speciality crop products


The Specialty Crop Regulatory Assistance (SCRA) is a collaborative, public-private effort to assist public and private-sector developers of biotechnology-derived specialty crops in their efforts to complete the complex US regulatory process for commercialization of biotechnology-derived crops. Specialty crop growers can continue to provide an ever expanding, abundant, and diverse supply of safe, high quality food for the public good if they have ready access to diverse crops and diverse traits. The SCRA will help to ensure that regulatory costs or complexity does not stand in the way of the development of biotechnology-derived specialty crops for a range of crop developers, from small entities to large firms with interests in the specialty crops.

The 2023 Nuts and Bolts workshop took place on September 19-21, 2023
