USDA Announces Availability of Biotechnology Quality Management System

warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /var/www/html/themes/theme368/node-simplenews.tpl.php on line 153.
Originalmeldung von United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)

Der "Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service" (APHIS) der USDA hat ein neues "Biotechnology Quality Management System (BQMS) Program" vorgestellt. Es geht um Management und Monitoring von Forschung und Entwicklung von Biotechnologien.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5, 2010 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is advising the public that it has developed an audit standard for its Biotechnology Quality Management System Program (BQMS Program).  The BQMS Program fulfills one of the provisions of the 2008 U.S. Farm Bill, directing APHIS to improve management and oversight of biotechnology, research and development.

In fiscal year 2009, APHIS completed work with five organizations on the initial BQMS pilot.   The pilot participants provided input on the draft audit standard, training workshops and procedures established for the BQMS Program.
Using the audit standard, regulated entities implement procedures to:

  • Improve management of regulated activities;
  • Maintain a positive chain of custody;
  • Maintain records;
  • Account for genetically engineered material;
  • Conduct periodic audits;
  • Establish an appropriate training program;
  • Provide contingency and corrective action plans; and
  • Submit required reports to APHIS in a timely fashion.

Each organization that voluntarily implements the BQMS Program conduct internal audits to make sure that its quality management system is being followed at all levels.  The organization is also audited by an independent third party.
The audit standard will be used by regulated entities to facilitate compliance with the regulatory requirements for field trials and movements of regulated genetically engineered organisms by developing and implementing sound management practices.

The BQMS audit standard and the comment evaluation document, as well as additional information about the BQMS Program, may be found on the APHIS website at www.aphis.usda.gov/biotechnology/news_bqms.shtml.

Notice of this action is published in today’s Oct. 5 Federal Register.
