The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) has announced that the
Philippine Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI) has
given the approval for the conduct of public consultations on the proposed
field trials for GR2E Golden Rice.

The public consultation process is a key component of biosafety regulatory
approval under the Joint Department Circular No. 1 series of 2016. The
consultation process is comprised of Public Information Sheet postings in
accessible community locations, a 30-day public comment period, and public
hearing. The process will allow community members the opportunity to
participate responsibly in a critical biosafety decision-making process.

The public consultation will take place in the Philippine provinces of
Mu?oz, Nueva Ecija (July 18, 2018) and San Mateo, Isabela (July 20, 2018).
