Agricultural biotech regulations in Asia

Australasian Biotechnology
Volume 22 Issue 3 (Oct 2012)

Abstract: The commercialisation of any genetically modified organism (GMO) necessitates regulatory approval in the home country of cultivation as well as in countries where the organism, such as a GM crop commodity, might be exported. Thus, for example, if the GM crop is to be exported to Japan, it will be necessary to have a regulatory approval for the GM event in Japan. Furthermore, even if the particular event will not be directly exported to Japan, it will still be necessary to obtain approval there because of the possibility of low level presence of the event in other versions of the crop.
