Product Launch Stewardship Policy

Dow AgroSciences is committed to bringing new biotechnology products to the marketplace in a responsible manner. As a member of both the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) and CropLife International (CLI), Dow AgroSciences supports BIO's Product Launch Stewardship Policy and CLI's Product Launch Stewardship Guidance. Dow AgroSciences is committed to conducting a market and trade assessment, and meeting applicable regulatory requirements in those countries most likely to produce or import the seed or products derived from those new biotechnology-derived plant products prior to commercializing new biotechnology-derived plant products. Dow AgroSciences will work in a transparent manner with stakeholders as to the implementation of this policy.

As a member of Excellence Through Stewardship®, Dow AgroSciences’ Product Launch policies and procedures are audited by an external third party auditor to verify that appropriate stewardship programs and quality management systems are in place.
