Late last year, USDA issued its Interim Final Rule (IFR) that establishes and administers a program for domestic hemp production and testing, including oversight of state and tribal plans for hemp regulation. The USDA is accepting comments on the IFR through January 29, 2020, which will influence the final rule. Meanwhile, the framework described in the IFR is currently in effect and the agency has begun approving state and tribal plans. This webinar will discuss how the IFR oversees hemp production and testing, issues the IFR leaves unresolved, themes that have emerged from the comments USDA has received thus far, and USDA’s next steps.
