Product Discontinuation Guide Revision

Tuesday, September 5, 2017  
Posted by: Excellence Through Stewardship
The ETS Guide for Product Discontinuation of Biotechnology-Derived Plant Products was recently updated by the Technical Development Committee to improve the overall organization of the guide, to enhance its readability, and to incorporate improvements based on member company experience with product discontinuation. The guide defines “discontinued products” as authorized commercial biotechnology-derived plant products that have reached the end of their commercial life cycle and all sales of materials under the organization’s control have been terminated globally.
The objectives of this discontinuation include the elimination of product inventories and to prevent future market exposure through an organization’s activities. The guide includes a comprehensive list of general considerations as sales of a commercial product are terminated and explores many potential product discontinuation scenarios. The process steps are outlined from making the decision to discontinue, to forming a discontinuation team, to developing and executing a discontinuation plan. The final process steps include verification and communication of the product discontinuation completion.
