Safety Results: GM Crops

Here you will find documents on our genetically modified (GM) crop products that have been assessed by regulators in the United States – the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Data to support every GM Crop product that Bayer has commercialized, in any country, has been submitted to the relevant US agencies. The submissions to US regulators are often the basis for submissions to other countries and contain the key safety studies that have been performed on the products and submitted to regulatory authorities around the world.  

 

We will continue to add information and update this list to allow for access to safety-related information as we bring new products to the market. Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more answers or email cropscience-transparency@bayer.com.
