In 2019, there have been no revisions or amendments to China’s regulatory approval process for agriculture biotechnology. On December 30, 2019, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) issued biosafety certificates for two new events and renewed the biosafety certificates for ten other events. Following a short public comment period, MARA also granted the biosafety certificate for cultivation to 192 plant varieties, including one soybean and two corn products. Separately, the Chinese government has clarified the regulatory pathway for enzymes derived from genetically modified microorganisms (GMMs). Finally, MARA continues to develop regulations on agricultural innovative biotechnologies (e.g. genome edited) in response to international developments and interest from the Chinese research community to commercialize genome edited products.
