The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Friday released the first regulatory actions regarding genetically engineered crops prepared using a new review process that allows the agency to hasten approval.

The first GE product to complete the new process is a glyphosate-resistant canola from Pioneer.

The new process allows the agency to make a determination of nonregulated status for crops with GE traits that have already been approved in another crop, if the preliminary deregulation petitions were made public.
