Biotech, Food, Drug

The food we eat and the medicine we put into our bodies are highly regulated by a variety of government agencies. In the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulate the processes by which food makes its way to the grocery store and medicine is approved for consumer use.  As the science grows more complex behind the pharmaceutical and food industry, interpretation of the regulations in place is becoming more nuanced.  Overseas, these industries are regulated by a variety of agencies; for example, the Minister of Agriculture in Canada, Centre for Food Safety in Hong Kong, and the Committee of Environmental, Public Health and Food Safety (EU), are among the many governing-bodies which regulate biotechnology, food, and drugs throughout the world.

The National Law Review is your free online resource to agency news, emerging topics in food and drug, and the latest in biotechnology updates. From nanotechnologies being used in research, to regulations of imported foods coming into the US from overseas or the development of medical devices and drugs, readers can find expert legal analysis of the developments in the industry, as well as reports on changes within the agencies that regulate these industries. The National Law Review also covers topics related to licensing, Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS), food and beverage regulation in the US and worldwide, nutrition labeling, and country of origin labeling guidelines.

With recent legislation being passed throughout the US in relation to marijuana use, both for recreational and medicinal purposes, readers will also find up-to-date information, litigation, and news coming from this area of interest as well. Regulations in California for labeling and proper sales of marijuana, to use in different states, or internationally, as well as rules for promoting and advertising marijuana are also covered on the site. Additionally, the development and changing landscape of tobacco use to include vaping, and how e-cigarettes and vaping are regulated, is also covered by NLR authors.

Readers who are interested in food safety, inspection, imports into the US, and regulations, these topics are covered regularly on The National Law Review as well. New legislation from the FDA, USDA, Department of Agriculture, and international bodies, are covered on the site. If you are looking for details on new nutrition-labeling regulations or health risks of consuming certain imported foods, you will find these topics, and many more, on The National Law Review.
