Excellence Through Stewardship (ETS) is a global industry-coordinated organization that promotes the universal adoption of stewardship programs and quality management systems for the full life cycle of biotechnology-derived plant products.

ETS Components

  1. Principles and management practices for the responsible global management (handling, governance, oversight, etc.) of biotechnology-derived plant products. ETS provides training and technical resources to assist in the implementation of stewardship programs and quality management systems.
  2. Guides to Understanding and Implementing Stewardship and Quality Management Systems. Guides are available on Stewardship, Product Launch Stewardship, Maintaining Plant Product Integrity, Incident Response Management and Product Discontinuation.
  3. A Global Stewardship Audit Process, that involves members contracting for independent third-party audits of their operations to verify that stewardship programs and quality management systems are in place.

Our Mission
ETS promotes the responsible management of plant biotechnology by developing and encouraging implementation of product stewardship practices and educating the public about those practices.

Stewardship is defined as the responsible management of a product from
its inception through to its ultimate use and discontinuation. In plant biotechnology,
stewardship includes careful attention to the responsible introduction
and use of products and their market impact.
