China Safety Certificate for Herculex® I Trait
The Chinese government has approved the final safety certificate for the importation of grain from Herculex I insect protection. China is a very important market for grain derived from biotech crops.
In 2002, China issued new regulations requiring safety certificates for imported grain derived from crops improved through biotechnology. Dow/Pioneer submitted extensive safety information for Herculex I. Grain handlers that import grain containing Herculex I into China must have a copy of the China Safety Certificate for Herculex I on hand.
Pioneer has received renewed biosafety certificates for import of TC1507 and 59122 corn. The new Biosafety Certificate for TC1507 and 59122 for Pioneer will expire on December 20th, 2018 without a grace period.
If you currently have a biosafety certificate for TC1507 and/or 59122 corn, please DO NOT reapply for a certificate as we will be proactively issuing new certificates to all grain traders who currently have a biosafety certificate. Grain traders with existing biosafety certificates will be prioritized ahead of new applications. If you are filing a new application, it will be handled in the order it was received.
Thank you for your patience as we begin the process of issuing new biosafety certificates.
